Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
I spent the entire day yesterday with my oldest daughter - Who has taken off work this week on Monday and Tuesday to PLAY. We packed the day with Shopping .......Errands ...... Lunch ..... and of course some amazing down-time at Starbucks. I helped her get some Christmas Shopping done and we had SO MUCH FUN BONDING!
My share today is a quick little share of my Christmas Tree back in Arizona!
Our tree is set-up at the front door and it's right outside my studio door.
Honestly ...... putting up a Holiday Tree is one of those events that I know Jack (and other guys) HATE ..... But I LOVE. I wanted to involve Jack in the process - but I didn't want to BATTLE with him on getting the tree up or down. SO ..... his job is to help me get the tree in the stand ...... he is then allowed to WALK AWAY and have nothing else to do with the decorating until it's time to take the tree down. I began decorating our tree with ornaments that I handmade and all I need to do when the holidays were over was remove the lights from the tree and the rest of the tree could be hauled out to the street .......... thus ending any battle over taking the decorations down or the putting away of the holiday decoration. (BRILLIANT - NO?)
The gingerbread men are made out of brown construction paper.......
And the snowflakes are diecut from white crazy foam!
I added colored stickles for his buttons ....... and glue that dires white for his rick-rack.
And under our tree we always have Steven's 3-Car Train and a Santa sitting in a chair. Both of these pieces make our Holiday Tree complete every year.
Thanks for joining me today - I'll be back tomorrow to share more decorations from our Arizona house with you. Keep Living Your Dream!
