Tree Trimming 2009

Saturday, November 28, 2009

As is our day-after-Thanksgiving tradition (a tradition that I brought from my family), we trimmed our Christmas tree. Last year, we were days out from Alexander's birthday and it was all either of us could do to breathe. But we trimmed the tree because it was his first Christmas and it was Nicholas and Sophia's first Christmas on the "outside". It was hard but we were glad we did it. This year, our tree trimming came a little over a week after having both Bobby and Maya home. They slept through most of the festivities. Peter's parents, my dad, and Sarah joined in on all the fun and our house is now sufficiently Christmased. I'll post more photos on the picture site (once I take a few more... Part of the house wasnt finished by last night so I only have photos of the tree on my computer right now).

It's a lovely tradition. My tree is up but no decorations are on it.
I just don't have the strength after working so hard on Thanksgiving day. It is a very long process with my 700+ ornaments. I have laundry to do, cards to write out and blogging to do. I also got a new camera and am obsessed with learning how to use it. The most important thing is that the tree is up and ready to be decorated along with the rest of the house. I prefer to do it when my husband isn't watching football and I can have Christmas music on.

The photo is precious.
