a portrait of my girls, once a week, every week in 2013
We got our Christmas tree from the farm market we visit weekly, they know us there and always have the biggest smiles for the girls. We let the girls run around the lot, looking and smelling and choosing the tree that would come home with us.
Kilmeny is thoughtful these days, stroking the needles and saying it was soft. And ‘I think, this one, mummy! Oh look at ALL THE TREES! Oh, it is Christmas time now.’
Khaira was happy just to run free, touching the trees with the point of her finger and then running some more. Laughing and shrieking.
They both thought the twinkly lights were so beautiful and loved hanging up the ornaments we made together.
I let them hang up ornaments wherever they pleased and then my husband and I finished off the tree while they looked at Christmas books and shrieked over all the pretty new decorations.
We always order pizza in the night of the tree trimming and eat pizza off paper plates by the light of the Christmas tree. It’s fun and a little crazy but that’s how memories are made.
What are your tree-trimming traditions? Do you have a real or fake tree?
