Oh (SAD little) Christmas Tree!
We purchased our tree when we lived in Austin. Our house in Austin had 10' ceilings. Last year, when we put it up here, we put it in the back of the house...coincidentally, it's the only room downstairs that has high ceilings. Since last year, Chris has built a banquet eating area in that space so we needed a new spot for the tree. We decided to put it in the front room. W/o thinking at all about the ceiling height. And that's the story of why our tree was missing it's top third =)
The kids didn't care though. Aidric LOOOOVED decorating it. He was so into it, I honestly barely touched the ornaments. We did it one afternoon when our babysitter Shelby was here. I thought she'd watch Cormac and the "big" kids and I would decorate. In the end, Aidric did almost all of the decorating. We had some hot cocoa and listened to Christmas songs too. It was really a great night! (and believe it or not, my type A personality just let go of the way the tree looked and it barely bothered me that all of the ornaments were on the bottom half of the tree and clumped together in spots)
Here she is in all her glory :)
