My sister-in-law fell and broke her hip on Sunday evening.
I was at the hospital yesterday waiting for them to do surgery.
I kept two of her grandchildren today.
They helped me put up the tree.
I couldn't find my new tree skirt and
I wasn't about to open every box in the attic.
I'll just get a cheapo at the dollar store.
Still trying to keep it simple.
Every year I'm downsizing more.
This was my tree last year.
This was my tree two years ago.
The past few years I've used all of my mom's ornaments.
I'm still using a few, but this year I felt like I needed a change.
I'm going from this...
still using some of my mom's favorites
while adding a pop of color.
I bought the red and turquoise at the after Christmas sales last year.
My little ones will love the color and I get to be a child again.
Please keep my family your prayers.
I am intentionally choosing to count my blessings.
I've already had to get the spray bottle to Callie.
I'm putting up the tree,
she's determined to pull it down.
