this afternoon elle louise and i decorated her little tree. she was very helpful during the decorating process, but to my suprise, has left the ornaments alone since putting them on. last year (on december 13th) i had my first baby shower and the hostesses asked that everyone bring a special ornament for elle. i put most of those ornaments on her tree this year. the very breakables, sweet baby's first christmas, and a couple with her name went on our big tree. which i love.
i tweeted this picture earlier, so sorry for the redundancy if you follow me on twitter.
elle was excited to show daddy her tree. she does this deep-throat gasping noise (for lack of a better description) when she gets excited. that's the noise she made when showing daddy her tree. and, she also raises her hand as if to point to the tree. she loves pretty things. i think we did good on the tree today.
i am ALMOST done with all my christmas decorating...a few things left.
-make stockings (suprised? by now, i'm sure you're not.)
-fill stockings (my favorite)
-make burlap wreaths
-hang lighted garland around front door
-convince aaron that we should buy lights for our bushes (gonna take a lot of convincing. need prayers!)
-make paper garland for big tree
-and, maybe a few other projects here and there. i really want to do something with cranberries!
