Christmas Tree, O' Christmas Tree

Christmas tree, Ooooh' Christmas tree, how I love thee! Okay.... Let me start off by telling you how much I love Christmas time! I love the smell of fresh pine in the house, the toasty fire, hot chocolate galore, and most of all - Snow Days! Anyone who's got little ones can appreciate how great those snow days can be. The tree is finally up, (actually a couple days ago), and it looks beautiful! I just had to share. The girls did a great job decorating it. The exciting thing is....everyday, the ornaments change location. The kids find it so fun to move them around the tree, to decorate and redecorate and redecorate:) (I finally see I'm rubbing off on them.) These are just some more pictures of our tree. Every year, I take a bazillion pictures, close-ups and all. I never want to forget how beautiful it was that year.

The crocheted birds nest made by my mom. I'll have to post
the snowflakes she crocheted. They're absolutely beautiful!

Now, at our house, we do not have the elf on the shelf. We have a Santa doll, a Christmas tree fairy, and a poinsettia plant to let our kids know, Santa will be aware of all they do. Yes, I said poinsettia plant. Santa doll has been there since day 1, he comes out as soon as we start decorating the home. Tree fairy, she's sweet and reminds us that it's okay if we get in trouble...a little. And last, poinsettia plant. This story is the product of a tired mom, trying to amuse her kids to finish the last bit of vegetables in their dinner plate. See, poinsettias are only sold during winter time. Ya know why? Because they come from the North Pole. Santa grows these beautiful plants and sticks little radios in the soil or somewhere on the leaves to listen in on what's going on in the house. The radios are so small they can even be a speck of glitter. Soooo....if you ever see my children and they're fiddling around your poinsettia plant....That is why:)
