Behold the tree. Those first few days we had it I was really worried it was going to fall on Jansen when I wasn't watching. Trust me to worry about something like that. Hey, weirder stuff has happened.Natalie is in awe of all this Christmas fun. Just look at her face! Our little decorator
Here's the mostly decorated tree. We dried oranges again (we did that last time we had a real tree) so that's what those orange circles are. The snowman to the right is guarding the tree and if anyone gets too close or tries to steal an ornament he promptly pokes your eye out with his stick arms. This is the best picture though. This is the "real" feeling of a Christmas tree. You know, when all the other lights are out and it's just the soft glow of the lights on the tree? I love it. If I'm feeling down I just go turn on the tree. Works every time! Although Natalie is doing fairly well at night so I don't have to do this, I remember pacing the house with Jansen at night around Christmas and being so grateful for the Christmas tree to brighten my 3 am spirits!
