And then on Sunday, when we were shopping at Target, we decided to buy two more trees to decorate. Because if you need to decorate one tree, three days before Christmas, why not throw in another two, right?!?! However Sam and Rachel fell in love with these trees and I convinced Dave they could be the trees for Sam and Rachel's rooms. Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that these two trees were each about 18" tall? And blue? Or red, as the case may be. Sam and Rachel were thrilled!
Sam decided he wanted an "ornament cluster" for a tree topper and Rachel decided she only wanted matte ornaments with one super sparkly one.
The kids were more interested in watching a video than decorating our family tree so Dave and I did most of it ourselves. While we were at Target I also convinced Dave to buy a set of 50 ornaments in all colours of the rainbow. I am in love with how colourful our tree is this year. I am not in love with how closed the branches still are. Or the bare spot on the bottom right of the tree. sigh. And Sam and Rachel came in at the end to hang a few key ornaments.
