O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree!

Part of Perfect Moment Mondays…

Artificial Christmas tree made with love!

Charlie Brown would be proud. After an encouraging suggestion from my friend, Helen, I decided to do a tree this year after all. It may not look like much, but I’ve never been prouder!

When I told Reagan we were going to make her tree, her eyes lit up like Rudolph’s nose. She took one gander at the paint and poster board and wanted at it!

We spent an afternoon painting the tree and all the ornaments and the next decorating the ornaments with glitter glue and sticking them to the tree. Reagan’s excitement at having her very first Christmas tree of her own could not be contained. So glad we got it all on film.

What precious memories this tree will provide. Our plan is to laminate it and put it up every year! Along with our “real” artificial tree of course. 😉

I bought a special nativity musical snow globe that plays “Silent Night” to place under the tree. Reagan tries to take the snow globe with her everywhere. I don’t know if I’ll be able to pack it away once Christmas is over!

Thank you to Helen for inspiring me to create our own family Christmas moment this year that is sure to be a favorite tradition for years to come no matter where we spend our holidays!

      Reagan has already “re-decorated” it. She’s having so much fun!

    It’s such a beautiful tree, so full of meaning!

    I’m so glad to see you in Perfect Moment Mondays, in fact, doing so gave me a perfect moment Tuesday today 🙂

    Thanks for your love and support, Chris. I reflect it back to you.

      Yay! Happy to be a part of it, Lori! You’re an inspiration!

    You should leave the globe out all year. We always leave one Christmas decoration up all year to remind us that Jesus is always the reason for every season! 🙂

A half-hatched role-reversal takes flight on a wing and a prayer.

Life is a misadventure mixed with mayhem.
