Trimming the Tree

This past weekend our house was filled with illness. Both of the girls had been fighting colds for a week. Adeline started with an ear infection and Saturday morning Mary Selwyn woke up with double ear infections. The whole family was up all night Friday night. It was no fun and now I have this awful cold. So after a Saturday morning trip to the doctor we came home and put on our Christmas pajamas and stayed in them for the next two days. What better to lift our spirits than decorating our Christmas tree. We normally do a huge real tree and a small fake one but this year, with trying to sell the house, we decided to just go with the smaller fake one. I was disappointed but Mary Selwyn would have been excited decorating a plant so I guess it doesn't really matter. Now we are all in the Christmas spirit and hopefully on the mend.

Decorating the tree made us all feel much better......

I think Mary Selwyn touched every single ornament

This picture is dark, I know but it cracks me up. The looks on their faces is like, "really mom?"

Ready for some presents under there!
