eight feet

Justin and I were a little impressed/intimidated by our 8 ft Christmas tree once it was up. We spent most of Sunday with our favorite Christmas CD A Charlie Brown Christmas by the Vince Guaraldi Trio playing. If this music doesn't put you in the holiday spirit you must have not seen A Charlie Brown Christmas as a child. Addie bopped to the music and helped with the ornaments. She loved the beaded garland and the soft kid friendly ornaments that I had. Once again my Mother amazingly thinks ahead and sends me off as an adult with not only gorgeous glass ornaments but also kid friendly ornaments for my then, future babies. I baked a pumpkin pie that afternoon so the house smelled lovely and the tree decorating was fun. We have ten foot ceilings so we were amazed at how big our 8 ft tree stood in the room. Addie was initially impressed with the tree decorating but soon got bored. Justin and I finished off the ornaments after Addie was in bed that night. I think it's a pretty good tree for being made in Thailand!

Looks great. Now all you need are the pine scented air freshners to hide in the branches to make it smell "real". It works! If you want I can send you a copy of "Snowed In" by our (actually my) favorite boy band Hanson. That will bring back cookie making memories. It sounds like a batch of almond roca is in the future.
