Kory has been asking me for weeks now about our Christmas tree, probably because so many people we know, family and friends have already put theirs up. Every time he seen one he would get so excited and shout ‘Christmas tree! Christmas tree!’ and when I asked him what did he want from Father Christmas, he said a Christmas tree… I’ve felt so bad for not putting ours up sooner, I love Christmas but November just feels too early to be putting our tree up for me. But Today we finally brought our Christmas tree down out of the loft, put it up and then decorated it!
Kory was so excited! He really wanted to get stuck in and help with all the branches and putting the baubles on. So we stuck on a movie and got to work decorating the tree.
I love our Christmas tree. We’ve had it for a few years now and we didn’t pay much for it when we bought it but every year when it’s time to put it up I fall back in love with it all over again. It might not look like much to some of you but I love it’s size, how easy it is to put up, it’s bushy branches and the glitter on the ends of each branch add a lovely sparkle to the tree. I’ve always stuck to the same cream-gold Christmas look. Just because I think it compliments the gold glitter that’s already on the tree nicely and also with our living room being natural colours it suits really well.
This time last year Kory couldn’t care less about a Christmas tree and didn’t know who the hell Father Christmas was (probably because he was only 16 months old at the time.) Where as this year he’s helped with all the decorating and we speak about Father Christmas all the time! It’s crazy how much your child grows and how much things can change in just one year! I just know that with each passing year, as Kory starts to understand more and more about Christmas it’s only going to get more and more magical…
When do you usually put your Christmas tree and decorations up? What do you love most about your tree?
