Serenity loves the "shiny ornaments!"

Serenity loves the "shiny ornaments!"

After everyone went home after Thanksgiving weekend I couldn’t wait another minute to put up the Christmas Decorations.  While Serenity took a nap I dove into the closet for our Christmas things.  ( She took an incredible three hour nap!  By the end I was camped outside of her room waiting for her to wake so I could show her everything!)  I only bought a few new ornaments so far because I was waiting to see how far what I already owned went.  Everything looks so nice in the house!  I did order an advent calendar from Pottery Barn because I really want to start new Christmas traditions for Serenity.  Speaking of which, I need to get busy and fill it tonight, December really snuck up on me!

The best part of Christmas decorating came when Serenity woke up.  With festive music playing and Daddy on the camera, I carried Serenity (in her Christmas dress)  down the stairs to see everything!  She was so excited!!  She was literally bouncing in my arms at everything I showed her.  I know she was excited because she actually said “exciting!!!”  She also ooohed and aaahed over the tree, saying “shiny ornaments.”  She has a book about Biscuits Christmas that she loves reading, so she immediately recognized the Christmas tree.  When I put her down by the tree, she was bouncing on her toes trying to jump and hop around.  She took off several ornaments (which is why I invested in a bunch of non-breakable felt ornaments.)  She especially loves the snowflakes.  There’s also a jingle bell ornament on the tree which she shook and said “jingle bells.”  Jingle Bells is her first Christmas song that she loves.  She asked me to sing it six times in a row on our last car trip!

Here are the pics!!  Enjoy =)

She loves to take things off the tree.  As long as she doesn't pull the whole thing over on herself, I'm happy she loves it so much!!!

    Your comment about not wanting Serenity to pull over the tree reminded me of a story. When I was about 5, my mom was out shopping and my dad was asleep. My little sister and I were under the Christmas tree playing with the ornaments. I accidentally pulled the tree down by tugging on one of them too hard. With 5 year old logic, I decided we should hide the tree so we wouldn’t get into trouble. We tore it all apart and hid it all over the house. My dad was furious when he woke up. He didn’t understand my logic, and we were in serious trouble. I was still crying when my mom got home from shopping. We didn’t have a tree at our house for years afterward. : /
