But this year I bit the bullet and went out at 5:30 (in the morning!) so that I could get a tree and have it up before Ruby woke up. She was so excited when she came downstairs and saw the tree. She could hardly sit down to eat breakfast she wanted to decorate it so badly.
She had a fun time pulling the ornaments out of their bins and handing them to me to put on the tree. And by the time we were finished we had a gorgeous tree all aglow and sparkling. Every late afternoon she begs me to be able to turn on the lights. And then she just stands in front of the tree staring and touching the ornaments.
