O, Christmas Tree... lovely are your branches.
Elanor loved decorating the tree this year! She was super excited to unwrap all the ornaments and remember which ones were hers,  and to find a place for them on the tree. Decorating the tree is always one of my very favorite Christmas traditions. We have Christmas music on, we do it together as a family, and it is always such a joyful experience.

I also love to sit near the tree at night, with only the Christmas lights on and just look at the tree, with a mug of hot chocolate in hand. It is so peaceful and wonderful.

Also, is there anything quite as adorable as this?:

Micah and Elanor did this on their own (they were pretend sleeping), there was not any posing from me (just picture taking).


  1. I'll be thinking of your as I sit beside my tree with all the normal lights off and my hot chocolate. Glad to know I'm not the only one with this tradition!

  2. CUTE!!!!! Sorry I didn't get back to you about the German Market. I hope you guys had fun! Eli and Jayson were too cold after sledding. Miss you!
