Sunday the commotion of a birthday party was over and the house was back to normal. Since the Packers played awful that afternoon, I decided it would the perfect time to dig the tree out of storage and set it up while the girls napped.
That evening after Josh arrived home from work and the girls woke up from nap, we turned on some Christmas music and decorated the tree together as a family for the first time. Lillian and Claire loved picking out ornaments one at a time and ask questions about it and then find a special spot for it on the tree. Some ornaments they requested to hang up high and some needed to be right at their level. The process was long, but wonderful. There were many times Josh and I took a step back and watched the joy and excitement on two little girls faces.
