Deck the Halls

We had extra help in trimming the tree this year.  It was so sweet to watch their eyes light up with excitement at the sight of it all.  Mallie Lynn loved every moment of fun decorating brought to our house and made everything just a bit more fun than before. 
Cue the Charlie Brown Christmas music, fix broken lights, break some ornaments, hang a few, pause for a tickle fest, play with the ornaments, that's how we trimmed our tree.  Oh and it may have taken more than one attempt to get it all done.  :) Why not stretch out a good thing?

As a child I loved visiting my Granny and Pepaw's house during Christmas and seeing all their decorations.  A few years back they passed down this vintage little gem and Mallie Lynn loved the addition to her room.  It became our nightly routine to turn it off while reading and tell it bye bye when getting into bed. 

There were ornaments to pet. 
Ornaments to eat. 
Some to hang.
lights to touch
berries to squeeze
pine needles to feel
ornaments to play with, (and eventually break).  :)
X wings to fly
and an angel to place at the top of it all. 
 After phase 1 in putting up the tree (with kids) and phase 2 (without kids)  we were able to sit down to enjoy the warm glow and cozy feeling it gives our home.  Watching Charlie Brown, the Grinch and Rudolph with these two little snuggle bugs were some of my favorite moments of all.
