This year Bo's schedule didn't give us anytime to go out and chop down our own tree, so we settled on picking one up at a local grocery store. The kids still had fun, and our house still smells great, so all parties were happy.
After decorating the tree, out came the Christmas Jammies!! This year I was too tired and busy to find matching pajamas, shocking, I know, but they still had new Christmas pjs, so I wasn't a complete failure. :) After the tree and jammies were on, the hot chocolate was made and some sort of Christmas movie was watched. Operation: Set up Christmas Tree was a success!
The next night (?) the kids decorated their own mini candy Christmas Trees. I didn't feel up to buying lots of candy and having huge messes (pregnant, remember?) so this was a nice, fun, cheap, and new activity for them. They loved it! I think the tree's lasted maybe a few hours before being eaten. :)
