25 Days of Christmas Quotes: Day 5

The Christmas tree is in the house and boy, does it smell good! I had forgotten how fragrant newly cut firs are. I’m really hoping the scent sticks around until Christmas.

We skipped the Christmas tree last year because we were afraid our son (then sixteen months old) would be a little too interested in tearing it down. Today that same son—now two years old—helped me decorate the tree. Watching him hang the ornaments…it was just so sweet. He was very focused on the task at hand and gave me one or two pointers on where I should hang my share of the ornaments. I am happy to report the bottom part of the tree is amply decorated! =)

Speaking of Christmas trees…here is today’s Christmas quote:

“Remember, if Christmas isn’t found in your heart, you won’t find it under the tree.” (Charlotte Carpenter)
