One of Maria's challenges today was to show a picture of our Christmas trees or a Christmas decoration in our house. I thought I'd show a close-up view of the boys decorating the tree (this is from last weekend). Adam found a spot on the tree and went to town! It took every bit of strength I had not to rearrange the ornaments once he went to bed! I knew he would be heartbroken if they weren't in the same spot, so I left them (oh, the sacrifices we make for our children! LOL). This was Noah's first year getting to put ornaments on the tree, so he was really excited! He actually did pretty well. He spread them out nicely, though a lot of them ended up on the floor! We had lots of fun.
If you haven't checked out Maria's blogs yet, make sure you do (Card Inspired and Stampin' Inspirations). She's giving us lots of chances to enter her blog candy draw! Plus, her work is beautiful - lots of tutorials, cards, techniques, sketches, and funny stories. Take a look!
Here's a look at the finished tree. I must admit that my trees looked a lot more "finished" in our B.C. days (before children)! You'll notice the huge concentration of ornaments at the bottom of the tree, leaving the top portion a bit sparse! Oh well!
