Deck the Halls!

 Hi all!  We just got back with an awesome few days with our Orlando cousins Victoria, McKenna, and Kit (which included a visit to the new American Girl Store!  Elizabeth will be posting about that soon).  So, we FINALLY got around to decorating our tree!  It had been up for awhile, but it had stayed empty - until now!
 "Look!  I'm a Christmas tree!" I said, holding a few ornaments while wearing the tree skirt.
"Chrissa, you are ridiculous!" Georgia laughed.  
"I think we need to start with the lights." Elizabeth said, still smiling.
"I'm ready for them!" I said dramatically.
"Not on you, goofball." Georgia said. "Take off the tree skirt and put it where it belongs."
"Okay, okay."
After my two older sisters hung the lights, I tied the tree skirt around the base, and stuck the star on top.
 "The tinsel is next." Elizabeth said, dropping it into our outstretched hands.
 Then it was time for the bulbs!

 "Since there are twelve snowflake ornaments, we each can hang four." Elizabeth handed Georgia and I four each.

 "I think we're done!" Georgia said, brushing glitter off her hands.
"Yep!  It looks pretty good." I agreed.
While my sisters and I were working on the tree, Mom decorated the rest of the house.  The kitchen looks pretty good!
What's your favorite thing about Christmas?

  6. I agree with Emma! My favorite thing about Christmas is that Jesus came. Where would we be without him?
