I finished decorating the tree after Hannah went to bed tonight. It’s wonderful to have it fully decorated but it would have been much more fun to have her help. Her attention span lasted about the length of time it took to put her little ornaments on the bottom though and then she was done. There were stories to read and toys to be played with. The tree was complete as far as she could tell.
Well, I left it like that for a week and truly contemplated just leaving it with her decorations but then tonight I decided to spruce it up a bit and add more things. I skipped many of the regular decorations I usually put on it and went with mainly gold, cream and red balls but I’m very happy with it!
That being said, there are still many special ornaments adorning out tree. In the bottom left corner of the pic above you can see the little ornaments Hannah and I made for the grandparents last year.
This little Asian girl and cottage were a gift from a dear friend as I waited for Hannah. It is a treasure and it signifies the years of faithfully waiting for God's perfect timing! And oh how perfect she is!!!!!!!!
Mulan, a reminder of our August trip.
And, the most precious new ornaments this year are the ones that Hannah made herself! This fun foam wreath
and her sweet little handprint!
Hannah has no idea that I was going to decorate the tree tonight. It will be fun to see her reaction in the morning!
4 more sleeps!! Merry Christmas everyone!!
