A Tree!

We got a tree! Phew. What an ordeal. I was so tempted to just say screw it and skip the tree but it’s Baby Bug’s first Christmas so I want to do everything just right. Which is silly, isn’t it? Is she going to remember any of this? I never had a first Christmas (since my family didn’t celebrate… and no, we aren’t 7th Day Adventists) so it’s special to me to do all the hooplah with her. I guess I should just admit it. I’m doing it for me.

Because everything is fun all over again when you have a baby! Yay!

She loves the tree. She’s very tactile so she’s constantly touching the needles and trying to eat them. Thankfully, she hasn’t tried to climb up into the tree or attempted to pull it down yet. But then it’s only the first day we’ve had it. I’m not sure how things are going to go. It’s like we have a GIANT no-no zone right in the middle of our living room which is usually where the baby can roam free without us worrying about anything. I guess this is just good practice for both of us because you can’t always keep everything off limits.

In the spirit of trees and fun happy Christmas things… here is the third FREE SAJ Christmas Card! Cheers!
