busy little hands


My little girls excitedly asked Trev & I if they could get a little tree for their room this year. They had such big plans on how to decorate it themselves.

We took them to the store where they picked out a small but lovely white tree with white lights. Perfect for a little girls room.

We brought the small tree home, where they carefully helped me assemble it, moving the laundry basket to make room for "their" tree. Oh were they delighted.
And then they disappeared.

Where did they go? They were busy for hours.
They spent the time cutting, pasting and giggling. They made round paper ornaments, Spongebob ornaments, "I love you" ornaments to name a few. And Skylar made quite a few origami candycanes, stockings, stars and even a cute little Santa-in-a-Chimney ornament (she loves origami). Oh, and I can't forget the yellow construction paper star for the top.Result? Here's the cutest tree I have ever seen. Ever.

Love the tree. When we were in medical school, I bought a $10 tree at a garage sale, we strung popcorn, and made paper ornament using christmas clip art on the computer. At the time, I didn't appreciate it (because we were poor) but I look back on it with fondness. We used that tree for several years! Your girls will remember this tree and I bet it will remain one of their favorites!

Their tree is gorgeous! Would they consider helping me with mine next year? They did such an amazing job they could probably start a little tree decorating business.

The Who's in Who-ville couldn't top that little tree! Is that Santa in the box out of the book we gave you? Don't remember seeing that one. When are the kids off from school?
