I am so excited that my friend Leah, aka Mrs Mama D, is sharing one of her favorite Christmas traditions with us!
My Favorite Christmas Activity
I love Christmas. Love, love, love. There is no other word to describe it. My most favorite thing is to put up the tree. I do have to admit, we have a fake tree, but I love starting with a blank canvas, putting on the lights and creating something new every year.
I have enjoyed this Christmas season so far, more than past years, because my two and a half year old daughter, Hailey, really enjoyed helping out, too! She loved going through the Christmas bin with me and pulling out all the decorations.
She loved helping putting the ornaments on the tree. She didn’t get the concept that they have to be spaced out, but it was still fun none the less.
She even got a kick out of the gold glass round bulbs. She could see her reflection.
A few of my favorite ornaments from years past are from our wedding:
And more recently the last couple years with additions to our collection from Hailey.
I absolutely love our light up angel tree topper. My Grandma Kleene gave it to me and I just think it adds so much character to our tree.
I loved putting our family tree together this year. Making it look beautiful. Every year is different. Never the exact same. I hope you all have a great holiday season!
Merry Christmas from The Danielson’s!
