Baby It’s Cold Outside

Decorating for Christmas this year was so much different than other years. Different in a REALLY, really good way. I threw out any ideas of having a perfect, beautiful tree. We let Charlotte put ornaments on, and of course we couldn’t use the glass ornaments with a toddler around. But that’s OK, there are plenty more holidays seasons for those! She was ridiculously proud of herself when she put an ornament on. We all clapped and cheered for her, which sounds hilarious, but is true.
Eric’s brother and soon-to-be-sister-in-law (that’s a mouthful) were there Sunday morning when we started decorating. Charlotte was napping when we put up the tree. When she woke up, she was in awe! Best. Reaction. Ever!
