Before mid November set in, I made sure our Christmas tree was up. I knew the girls would want to help decorate it - especially since this year Natalie was already walking and moving around and about. Best of all, she loved doing things with her big sis so decorating the tree was something I knew they would enjoy together.
By December I wanted to add more decor to the tree. And since I don't really like frilly decorations around the house, I had to come up with a creative yet simple and modern way to jazz up the tree.
Thanks to the internet, I found some really great ideas to help me out! :) (can't take all the credit! I'm a busy working mom and my brain cells are needed for work and playtime activities! haha!). When I saw a tree online decorated with just different colored Christmas balls and lights, and nothing else really (which is more my style!), I got excited! :) So I decided to get Christmas balls in rainbow colors (plus pink!) for our tree ;)
Before I finished the tree though, the girls already left me and went in to rest haha! All of that toddler energy was used up pretty well shuttling the decor back and forth (combined with playing in the room) ;) And so when I was finally done, I called them and I was so happy to hear Audrey's big "Wow! our rainbow tree is ready!" :) My husband then got to work putting on the lights for the final touch! Thanks Dada! :)
It was an awesome day decorating the tree with everyone in my family! :)
Happy Holidays! :)
