Advent Activity for December First: Decorate for Christmas
As always, Ian was super excited to dig through the ornaments. He always goes for his favorite one, the ice cream truck that plays Jingle Bells. Ian and Annaliese pretty much decorated the entire tree themselves, and you could totally tell as all the ornaments were grouped together and all at their eye level. Darrin and I had to go back through and disperse some of them to the top and bottom of the tree, as well as the back.
Once the tree was done, Ian was done decorating; he wanted to focus on Angry Birds Star Wars instead. Annaliese was still all about helping, though. I finally finished the tree skirt this year that I had fabric for since 2004ish. With the new skirt, we needed a new tree topper, so she was the lucky one to put it up.
She was super excited for the stockings, too. I think what excited her the most was the snowman holder; she'd cradle it in her arms like a baby. It was too cute!
