Hands down one of my favorite parts of the holiday season is decorating the Christmas tree. It seals the deal on verifying that yes, Christmas is upon us. Plus, it just smells so good.
Last night we picked out our tree out and got it as straight as it is going to get, while my 3 year old niece serenaded us with the following lines of at any given time:
"Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree..." -- Appropriately enough.
"'Tis the season to be jolly, fla la la la la la la la la...FLA, la la la la, la la, la, LA!" -- Notice, it's fla, not fa. Every time.
"Frosty the snowman sailed the ocean blue in 1492." -- Not joking. She really said this. Multiple times. It was awesome. She loved learning about Mr. Columbus, so it only makes sense to combine him into the next holiday.
"Happy Hanakuah, happy hanakuah, festibol of lights." -- We are not Jewish. But, I completely appreciate the diversity she provided for the evening. And that she says festibol of course.
"...Put Christmas in your heart..." -- So precious and sweet.
And one of my faves, "Jingle hells, jingle hells, jingle all the way." -- Not a typo. She thinks this is what a Christmas dog she has sings when you push his paw. We have tried to convince her otherwise.
She is a well rounded little girl, I'd say. Any time she couldn't quite get the hook on the ornaments, this is how they ended up.
Of course, when you're 3 and are learning to organize, this is how you hang ornaments.
Love love love decorating trees. How does your tree look this year?
