We FINALLY put up a tree. With one week to go, we are finally feeling the Christmas spirit here in the Gardner household.
Two exhausted parents sat by as their 5 and 8 year old decorated the tree. However they liked. So that made for bottom-heavy decorations. And a lot of pink. Josh says that it’s the most authentic tree we’ve ever had. I think he’s right. Maybe we parents should stay out of the way more often.
We didn’t even bother to put the lights on the tree (or turn the lights on outside that have been up all year for that matter). We did, however, plug the lights in so Charlie could see them.
Wishing you a Very Merry Holiday this year! I know I’m going to make the most of this coming week of Christmas!
