I usualy have all my decorating done by now, but this year I’ve only just started
D#2 decorating the tree, believe it or not D#1 is decorating too!!!!!!!
She is actually googling Christmas Trees and then directing her sister on where to put the ornaments. D#1 is one of a kind, she likes to be in control. Must have got it from me, as I use to be so anal about decorating the tree, everything had to be just right, but then I realised I was taking the fun out of it for the kids. So for the last few years it has been their job to decorate the tree. I put on the lights and then they get to put all the ornaments on. My husband and I have so much fun sitting there watching them. The majority of the ornaments have a story or a special meaning, and as they hang them up they tell us about the ornament. The smiles on their faces is what it is all about. Sure my tree looks lopsided, and some areas are top heavy with ornaments, but they are so proud of their decorating. I can’t replace the happy memories they have of decorating the tree, with the perfect looking tree. Have a great day.
