Trimming the Tree

The weekend after Thanksgiving we got out the Christmas decorations and decked out the house. 
Then it was time to get out our tree!
I put together our ornament piles (one for each of us) and put on the Carpenters Christmas album (because we can't decorate the tree without listening to it!)
and we got to work.
It's so much fun to look at all of our ornament and talk about all the memories connected to each one.

Abi put the star on the tree.
Then it was time to have a cup of cocoa... but the girls asked for eggnog this year instead.

As usual we sleep around the tree after we decorate it. 
So we set up beds for the girls on the floor and settled in for a cozy night watching Barbie's Perfect Christmas by fire and tree light.

Our new ornaments for this year. 
We got them all at Disney World.
Victorian Mickey and Minnie globe and Beauty and the Beast dancing are the family ornaments, 
Winnie the Pooh and Piglet for Maddy, 
and Tinkerbell for Abi. 
We let them each pick theirs while we were there.

The next morning the girls played the Christmas checkers that Doug and I played the night we met.
