At my house the Christmas trees go up early,maybe too early for some,but I like to have them up early and then once December 26 rolls around,I am ready to turn my house back to normal.
This year it was on November 7th that Steve and Kai came over to help set up my two trees.I need to clarify this,I put the trees where I wanted them and put the ribbon on them,Kai did all the decorating and as she put it,'Daddy can just sit there and watch'.
Well Steve found something to do,he grabbed my camera and took a few shots while she worked.
That intense look on her face says that each ornament,no matter how small,must be hung at just the right place.
This little Reindeer has been in my home for many years and always gets a special spot on the tree.After the decorating is done,it becomes a game to see where the reindeer will be hiding and what may be in it's mouth.
Just to prove that the reindeer can open it's mouth when you squeeze his cheeks.
This is tree one with red and white .
The trees came pre-lit and even the bases are pretty.The lights flicker and make it look like stars twinkling.
This is a close-up of the stars in the base.
Whether you are preparing for Christmas or Thanksgiving in the US or any other event,remember:
Invest the time,talent and resources God has given you this day.
