25 Days til Christmas

Tonight we decorated our Christmas Tree.

Everyone was looking forward to it all day long. I lost count of how many times they asked me if it was time to decorate the tree.

One of our Christmas traditions is for each of the kids to pick out a new ornament every year. That means 3 to 6 new ornaments (the grandparents have gotten involved, so it is more than one ornament a year!). But, all three of the kids have great ornament collections, and wonderful memories to take with them, some day.

The Christmas Tree is getting pretty full. Every ornament on this tree belongs to the kids. I think we may be in the market for a larger one at the after Christmas clearance sales this year.

This year Caley has added two new Tinkerbell ornaments to her collection. She loves Tinkerbell!
Caitlyn got Minnie Mouse and Sleeping Beauty ornaments. Two of her current favorites.

CJ got a Mickey Mouse baseball ornament. A great tribute to his first Little League season.

It was a fun night and it went surprisingly well!
