Kira’s “Pretty” Christmas Tree

  • December 5, 2009 12:11 pm

Since we’re moving this month, I have yet to set up a Christmas tree in the house.  This of course is killing me, as I ALWAYS put my tree up the day after Thanksgiving.  This year?  Not an ornament in sight, unless you count the ones under the couch that we’re still finding from last year (thanks, Kitty).  So Idecided to set up a little tree in Kira’s room.  I thought this could be a fun tradition to do every year with her when she gets older, and we  could even put a little present under it on Christmas Eve so she has a little gift to open when she leaps out of bed on Christmas morning.

I was intending to get one of the “mini-trees” that you see at all the craft stores, but when I went to Walmart, I found this little 8″ tree, pre-lit!  Well, you can’t pass up the opportunity to never have to string lights.  I set it all up in her room and when I took her in there for bed the first night and she just grinned and grinned at “pretty”.  Now when you put her to bed, even for naps, she looks over at the tree, waiting for it to be lit up.  Normally she sleeps in pitch black, so I’m astonished that she sleeps just fine with the rather bright light from this little tree.
