We didn't do a Christmas tree last year, or the few Christmases before, but this year we decided to since Julie is a little bigger now and can enjoy it. And she really does. She had a lot of fun putting ornaments on the tree, even if she did try to put them all in the same spot. : )
And then the next day she pulled her rocking chair up to the tree to have a closer inspection of the tree and it's decorations.
She says "Hi Tree!" and "Hi Lights!" to the tree (and lights) each day and she tells them bye at night before she goes to bed. She also gets to turn the lights on in the morning and off at night, which she seems to really enjoy. Yesterday she even turned the lights off at her naptime, because the tree needed to take a nap too. : ) I just love her innocent enthusiasm.
