Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas Tree

The holidays are here in our house. We finally have put up our tree, and even though it’s not her first Christmas, it is the first Christmas where she is able to see what the heck is going on. Oh, the perils of having a late autumn baby.

She watched us put up the tree the other day with eyes that were wide and full of wonder. You could almost read the “THERE IS A TREE IN MY HOUSE. TREES DO NOT GO IN THE HOUSE!”

As we decorated it, we made sure she was involved, and Christmas slowly is coming to life for her. We’re hoping to make it out to see the local mall Santa, but if we don’t make it, I’m not going to lose too much sleep over it.

Last Christmas

This is the last Christmas my husband and I will have as just the two of us. Next Christmas there will be a 3-4 month old with us.

Next year we will have a tree, because right now, with it just being the two of us, we can’t justify going through the pain in the butt things of decorating and having to take it down.

But next year, we’ll have someone with us, and family with us to celebrate.

I’m both scared and excited for this.
