While Justin had dreamt of picking out the Christmas tree with Seren while I was home snuggling with a newborn, and I had dreamt of decorating the Christmas tree as an early labor project, we were both a little off. No matter. We decided to pick out a tree this past Saturday and have fun with it even though I’m neither snuggling a newborn nor in early labor. Simply giganticly pregnant. We had a great time – I love Christmas trees and Justin loves family activities — he took most of the day off to spend with us.
We made some homemade pizza, in the meantime, using Justin’s bread dough. Yum!
Christmas music and decorating the Christmas tree. My idea of heaven.
Seren was SO excited about putting the star on top. She’s familiar because we have a Little Critter book where Little Critter gets to put the star up on the Christmas tree. Not only that, but Seren’s name means star and Gramma calls her ‘my little Star’ so she just loves sparkly stars. It was funny, though. Earlier in the evening she had been begging to wear her Elsa gloves while we decorated the tree. However, when she was wearing her Elsa gloves she was dropping some pretty fragile ornaments so we asked her to take them off, some debating ensued, and an agreement was made that she could wear her gloves to put the star on at the end. Well, we forgot! So here she is putting the star up without the gloves.
And here she is re-doing it with her gloves on, once she realized we’d all forgotten. Ha!
