Today we worked all morning cleaning the house, while Scott worked outside cleaning up all the leaves (monumental!). We all got dressed and made a snack lunch. Then it was time to trim the tree.
I actually put it up on Wednesday so Ella could get used to it before we put all the ornaments on it. She has loved the tree; stopping by to look at it and touch often. She and I made up a little song to the tune of Jingle Bells: Christmas Tree, Christmas trip, La La La La La, Christmas Tree, Christmas trip, La La La La La (Ella can really sing it with me!).
Anyway, we had a ball trimming the tree and eating cookies that the girls made. Now we are off to play a little prank of Jason and Amy. They are away for the weekend, so we are taking a tree Scott has over to their house and put it up in the middle of their family room. Amelia suggested we TP it. We think that will look great! After that, we are going to look at some new furniture for Rosemary and EllaKate, then to eat dinner. What a BIG day!!!
