Putting up the Christmas Tree

It's a tradition at the Johnson house to put the Christmas tree up the Saturday after Thanksgiving. By that time, the turkey has digested and Black Friday gifts are setting in the spare room, ready to wrap (and are still setting there). Ryan and I got our tree the first Christmas we were a couple, 9 years ago, and we love it so much that we fight with the prelit bulbs every year. This year the small section at the top was out and it only took us two hours to find the problem. Let's just say between the light issue, football games, and 9 month old curiosity, we were two days actually getting the ornaments on it!!! Emma really enjoyed the tree and the lights. She was intrigued by the fact that it turns. She has for the most part, left the ornaments alone. There are a couple of ornaments that she really likes to catch has they spin by. I absolutely love the Christmas season. The best part of the season is remembering that all the Christmas spirit comes back to a little baby in a manager. May your Christmas be filled with the love of Christ and the spirit of what He can do in your life.

Emma enjoyed playing with the ribbon

Chase has so many of his own ornaments that we decorate a tree for him. I decided to decorate one for Emma even though she only has three ornaments, one of which Chase gave her from his tree.

This is Emma's first ornament. Instead of buying one, I decided to make it using her handprint.
