The Smith'sonian 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS
Here we go again! I loved doing this so much last year that I want to do it again!!

On the First day of Christmas, my
children gave to me...

I'm a "real" Christmas tree kind of girl, but this year Christmas spirit got the best of me and I got a hankering to put up the tree... IMMEDIATELY! We just happened to be given a Christmas tree this last year and it was sitting up in our attic, calling to me.
Down it came and up it went. The branches were all spread out and put in their neat little rows, it was positioned in it's cozy corner, the lights went up, and then...the bedtime intermission. The next morning was Thanksgiving and the boys were UP and READY early. In their "excitment" they knocked the tree DOWN breaking the top right off. Here it is in all it's beauty:

Never fear,
Super daddy "fixed" it and now it is as beautiful as ever (minus the crooked and leaning top)!
