My Two Christmas trees

My two Christmas trees are up.  Are dressed for the party.  Christmas is the party.  Are you ready yet?  There’s only 7 days left. You better get ready.  My sister just confessed to me that her tree is up but not dressed yet.  And sometimes that will happen, so don’t worry if it’s not yet ready.  But get on it.  Time is ticking.  It actually took me this long as I had to convince my monster j {she’s 18} to come and be home for an afternoon.  You know teenagers always somewhere to go or be.  It’s been our tradition for her to top my tree’s and even though she fussed and fought.  I believe she was secretly happy to be included.  I know soon enough she will have her own life and tree’s.  But for now she’s still my baby and the one who tops my tree’s.

mothernchildchristmas2013 Even as your child grows up.  Every Christmas you cant help but think back to those precious years when there waking up on Christmas morning was the best day of the year.

There are some things that I take out every year at this time to decorate that take me back to the times when my baby {she will always be my baby} was my baby.

See this little throwback I shared on my instagram a couple of Thursday’s ago.  This was J’s 2nd Christmas back in 1996 she was 20 months old at the time.IMG_7789And that cute Santa teddy she is holding still adorns my home every year since 1996.  Those other two teddy’s she probably got in subsequent years after ‘96.  And here they are now tucked in a corner of my living room.

Here is my little tree toping star now.

jtoppingtree1 I think I had a little too much fun with picmonkey and this picture.

Here are my tree’s. The living room got silver and the sun room got gold.

I know this year they both look a little sparse but I figure over time I will be able to start hoarding collecting some more silver & gold decor so that by next year they should both be much fuller.  I love me a great after Christmas sale.
