With everything that seems to be going on in our lives at the moment, things have seemed to have gotten a little on top of us. We bought our xmas tree almost a week ago and it has been standing undecorated for almost a week. The children keep nagging to decorate it, but we honestly have not had the time or energy.
I told the children that ‘You have to wait for the branches to settle’ as it is a real tree, although I must say, it does not smell as nice as our previous xmas trees.
My wife and two younger children decorated the tree and within minutes it was over and done with. A little upsetting really as the children just seemed to wanted to get it over and done with and get back to what ever it was they were doing.
I suppose we have to get used to the idea that they are not little any more and the whole xmas excitement thing seems to be less and less every year as they grow older and older.
anyway, I think they did a lovely job of decorating the tree.
