I’m happy to report that we made it. The kids made a fast recovery so by Saturday we were able to head up to the mountains and cut our tree.
We really wanted a noble this year, but found a nice fir tree instead. I think it’s magnificent- and so is the man carrying it.
At first, Ms O wasn’t sure of all the white stuff and kept asking me to wipe the snow off of her mittens. But, after a few more falls in it and watching her brothers roll around in it, she decided that snow was fun after all. Here’s her *huge* smile to show it:
I love love love this little girl!
We put the tree up in our living room last night and the boys really enjoyed decorating it with all the “kid” ornaments. (The other ornaments do not go on the tree until Christmas Break starts and the daycare children aren’t here.)
So now all the lights are up, the tree is up and our house is filled with excitement. I love Christmas!
