O Tannenbaum

Because Thanksgiving was so late this year, the advent season ended up being pretty short. We went up to northern Virginia for the holiday so we decided to waste no time and stopped to get a Christmas tree on our way back into town. It was weirdly warm that day despite it already being December, so none of us were wearing our jackets. We have decorated the house slowly over the last couple weeks, but wanted to be sure to get the tree up and ready first thing.

We let Eleanor help decorate the tree, but since that day we've been finding ornaments all over the living room. After Eleanor ripped one of her adornaments from Gmom in half, we put only wooden or plush ornaments in her reach and everything else up high. She particularly loves to pull off a small teddy bear and then we will later find him shoved in the middle of some branches somewhere on the tree. She also really likes to pull on the bells from our tree skirt because she loves to shake them.
