My First Christmas Tree
We went to pick out our Christmas Tree. My husband and I picked two that we liked but couldn't decide which one to buy. We let stinky decide. She looked at both trees, touched both trees, laughed and then leaned in to one of them. That was the tree we took home. She watched with intrigue and hesitation as Daddy sawed off part of the bottom. The noise scared her a little. She was very interested in the branches and how they felt. When her daddy turned on the lights she paused and with an open mouthed gazed was in ahh. Once the ornaments were on the tree she was even more interested. It is amazing how strong a child can be, she ripped off that ornament in seconds. It took her a lot less time to rip off the ornament then it did for us to put it on. She loved the Christmas bells and enjoyed dancing to Christmas music while we put the ornaments on. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.
