Last night, when the kiddies were all tucked in their beds, Tony and I got the Christmas out. As we are trying to sell our house, we just got the tree and the stockings out, and one or two other little things, but I feel better now having it out.
This years tree is a story book tree. It has all the books on it for which we have coordinating toys: Elmo, Biscuit the puppy, Grinch, Curious George, the sheep books, Mickey Mouse, Maisy the mouse and so on. It really turned out great! What do you think? I do a different theme tree every year and usually try to do something with what I have on hand, which means ‘on the cheap’.
Elly wandered into the kitchen with me this morning, saw the tree, gasped and froze.
“It’s Merry Christmas Day!” she said. I explained that Santa came last night and hung the stockings and put the tree together for us. If she’s really good, Santa will come back and bring her presents.
