You may have noticed that our Christmas tree is already up in our household this year. Slightly a little earlier than planned as Liv could not wait any longer. So here I am, sat writing this post, gazing at my lovely, new, artificial Christmas tree. Oh, how I long for a real Christmas tree, though with a dog and a curious 3 year old who likes to swap the baubles around, it simply is not practical at the moment.
My new tree is a recent treat after having our old artificial tree for many years, it was about time we had the new addition. A pre lit Christmas tree would have been so much easier, though dangling the lights around the tree is something I love to do. Even if I needed to take the lights off and start from scratch again as I was left with excess wire. It didn’t matter though as Liv really did enjoy dressing the tree.
It is so magical now that she is of the age where she is more aware of Christmas and what it means. In her mind Christmas means Father Christmas and 5 presents, that has all she has asked for, bless her cotton socks! If I had have known that before I started buying presents, it could have worked out a cheap do for me! All I know is, we will have a wonderful Christmas, hopefully with lots of snow!
