So today while Mackenzie was at preschool I decided to be very ambitious. I hauled out the Christmas tree (up 2 flights of stairs mind you) and assembled it. After one attempt of putting the pieces on backward, I did get it up. Didn't think to look at the directions, that would be silly. I wanted to wait until Mackenzie got home to decorate it, since she is now at the age where she really wants to help with everything! I told her in the car that we were going to decorate the tree when we got home and she about burst with excitement. She walked into the room and said, "Oh it's just bootiful Mommy, just bootiful". So exactly one hour after we put all the decorations on the tree, the bottom 1/3 of them are off due to some sticky fingers. Maggie is prancing around like she has the greatest treasure ever, with a jingle bell ornament. And, I have been pelted in the head about 3 times with it, which she thinks is soooo funny. In the background the girls are watching How the Grinch stole Christmas, which I imagine we will watch 50,000 times in the next month.
