I figure it’s about time that I shared a few pictures from December first, when we decorated our Yule tree. It’s our first year with a big (six foot) tree. I’ve posted before about our little half-a-tree that we normally hang on the wall. Well, in our new house we actually have room for a regular sized tree – so when Grampa offered us his (he was switching to a table top sized one) we gratefully accepted!
We really did love our little half-tree-thing… but this? Watching the girl’s face light up, getting to pick out and buy new ornaments, as well as hanging some that Grampa and Gramma Joan gifted us? It was pretty amazing. Lily-Ann had the most wonderful time and it did my heart some good to be a part of it all.
After it was all decorated, I put out the bags for her Advent Calendar, and she dug through them looking for bag number one… thus beginning a wonderful new Yule tradition in our wonderful new home.
With that, here’s wishing you all a Joy-filled Yule! One packed full with wonderment and delight. Take time to be childlike!
