on sunday we got out our christmas tree and decorated it. penelope is at a great age for this. she had a blast with all the ornaments and kept saying "i love christmas trees." she is still rearranging and moving ornaments to make the tree "perfect." it is amazing how many memories are revived while decorating the tree. so many of our old ornaments have fun christmas memories attached to them...i loved it.
we also read the polar express to get a little more christmas spirit. i LOVE the polar express. my two favorite christmas books are the Polar Express and the Three Trees. but there are SO many good ones. what are your faves?
yep, we did decorate right after waking up, so jammies and bed heads are on display here.
one new addition to our tree this year were these little bird houses that i found at michael's for $1 each. i bought 6 and painted them all gold.
