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!
