Decorating the Christmas Tree
Finally – FINALLY – we have been decorating the Christmas tree! After I complained all the way through November that I was impatient and wanted to put the tree up then, we’ve now only just gotten round to it.
We decided to get a small artificial tree this year so bought a 3ft one from Homebase and it’s great quality and very cute.
Our lounge (where the tree is) has an aqua, white and coral theme so we decided upon blue, silver and white baubles, also from Homebase.
The tinsel is blue and silver from Dobbies and we’re still awaiting a silver star from Marks & Spencer (affiliate link). I couldn’t find a star anywhere this year! I hope they deliver it soon as it looks a bit weird without it.
We put the tree up while Miss M napped, for a surprise when she woke up, and she was just delighted – it was so cute to watch!
For about an hour she stood and pointed shouting ‘cwiss-mas twee’ over and over again. Then she grabbed each of her stuffed animals and individually gave them a showing of it too :)
7 hours later, the tree isn’t in quite the ‘well-decorated’ state it started in and most of the baubles are now under the sofas having been ‘lovingly’ pulled off and thrown around but the look on her face made it all worthwhile!
