Trimming The Tree On Tuesday

We put our tree up a few days ago and strung the lights. I let it sit for a few days before we actually decorated it. We have so many decorations and with two little princesses, it can be quite an ordeal. haha!

Tonight we finally trimmed the tree in our collection of Snowmen. There are several special ornaments and odd-ball funny ones, but mostly Snowmen that Greg and I have collected over the years. We have Snowmen everywhere around Christmas time. In past years, we thought about switching up our theme; like classic Santa's or something. But after almost 13 years of collecting, it's seems like a lot to replace our Snowmen.

The girls were fanatic about it. Emily is really big into Christmas this year and Izabel wants to help with everything. Izzy did a great job and made sure to stretch and space her ornaments nicely. Emmy stuck to one side of the tree and about 3 branches. LOL!! All in a nights work though and Mommy and Daddy "cleaned" up the tree after they were done helping.

Sixteen more sleeps and Santa will have to make his appearance. Would it shock you to know that we've bought nothing for anyone? Not a thing.

Hoping you and yours are enjoying the Holiday Season! ♥

First I must apologize for being so far behind, blizzard, hubs home and underfoot, grandkids spent a night, and gingerbread houses have left me little time on the computer over the last few days.

I collect snowmen too. :) Just love their happiness! I love your tree and that last shot the girls look SO big! They are growing too fast!
