It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We put up our tree. My favorite thing about artificial trees is being able to put them up so early. We got a new tree this year, easily three times the size of our old tabletop tree. The kids are super excited and festooning it with various “ornaments” (mostly Fisher Price Little People.) Later on we’re going to make some more traditional ones.

I hear, right now, Abby, Gil, Trixie and Gloria singing “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” in “Oo oo oo” a la Charlie Brown credits. Aww.

Then Faith, saying in true oldest sister fashion, “You guys sound like dogs howling.”

I snorted (good thing I’m in the other room) and then chided “No they don’t! They sound just lovely.”

Happy Advent, at any rate.

  1. I want a fake tree now. Karl says the real ones are self regulating- they hurt to much to rub against for the kids to damage them.

  2. Oh, I need to get a Christmas tree! At my mother’s we’d have ours up by now. I hope pictures of the tree and Gleeson-made ornaments are forthcoming.
