Last year we never put up our Christmas decorations because we spent the holidays in Arizona at a rental property with my family (and the year before that we were in MN). This year we really wanted to stay home with the kids because Harvey has never actually spent Christmas at our house!
Yesterday we were laying around feeling exhausted and lazy after 2 days of skiing with the kids and throwing a huge birthday party for Stella, but finally in the late afternoon we hauled out the Christmas tree and decorations. Stella literally decorated the entire thing herself and was SO proud of how it turned out. There’s something that warms my heart when I see my kids’ faces reflected in the twinkling lights of our Christmas Tree.
