Trimming our half-a-mini-faux-tree-thing.

I’ve shared in the past a little about our funny little half a fake tree wall hanging, and why we love it in spite of it’s intense oddness.  You can read all about it here:  https://td365.wordpress.com/2010/12/21/the-yule-tree/

Normally I like to put the kind-of-a-tree up on Yule.  It’s part of our celebration…  but the girlie has been asking to do so for a couple of weeks already, so I figure it’s something worth bending on.  🙂  And this year, instead of just photographing it, we decided to do a couple little iPad videos – each one is only about 30 seconds long, so give them a click and take a peek.

Organizing Ornaments:  After putting on the garlands, we always sit down and dig all the tiny ornaments out of the tins, organizing them as we go.

Trimming the Tree:  Here’s kid-kid.  She did the majority of the trimming herself this year.  I helped with about 1/3 of the ornaments, but only when asked.  She was having sooo much fun doing it, that I wanted to save as many as possible for her.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas!:  When we were all finished, Lily-Ann wanted to do one last video.  So here she is singing (unrehearsed) a little carol.  And I must say, I think this years tree is the best yet.  All thanks to my awesomerific kid!  😀
