I conducted a brief tree trimming 101 with the kids, while we were on our way back from dinner; and I think that they have a good understanding of what I expect. Not to sound like the Navidad Nazi; but I do come from a long line (OK, one good solid generation) of tree decorating divas. When I was growing up, our trees were nothing short of perfection; and despite the fact that we have a MUCH smaller tree than what I had as a kid; I always take great pride in having a splendid, spectacle.
I'm sitting in our family room typing my blog; while the kids are decorating the tree. They asked if they could watch "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town;" because they are absolutely in love with it now; and they're singing "Put one foot in front of the other;" as they happily (and carefully) adorn our tree.
Kelsie took a break for a moment and asked if she could give me the present that she bought for me at the school, Santa shop; because it's something that we should put on the tree; so I said sure. I opened her gift and found a BEAUTIFUL glass angel ornament. Kelsie explained that she chose this ornament because I'm her angel. Aww, either she's the best brown noser ever; or I'm one LUCKY mama. (I'll go with I'm one LUCKY mama.)
