Putting Up Our Little Christmas Tree

Putting Up Our Little Christmas Tree

Christmas tree

Our very own Christmas tree. It is small but it is already enough to make my little girl happy.

Yesterday, I already thought of putting up our Christmas tree. Though I am really busy, I just know that I had to make time for it. So after last year’s tree and decors were cleaned, Dindin and I started working on our little tree.

It is only about two feet tall but it took maybe 30 minutes for Dindin to fill up with the balls and trimmings. She was just so happy as she did it. Look at the photo below, she is all smiles while working and singing, “Deck the halls with boughs of holly…fa-la la la la la la la la. hahaha She was just so happy!

Deck the halls…I mean…Deck the Christmas tree. πŸ˜€

I already started looking for a bigger and fluffier Christmas tree but they were all way beyond our budget. So we are sticking to our old tree. I guess we can do that in the future. For now, Dindin is content with our little green. πŸ˜€

And the final touch…the Christmas star.

If Mama is not so busy later than maybe we can already start wrapping the gifts for our family and friends. We have bought most of the gifts for our godchildren and Dindin’s friends. We may have missed a two or three, but then that would be it. I am still thinking of buying some stackable chairs for less that we could also give as gifts.

I was told that gift wrapping service at the mall is swamped. You have to leave your gifts and come back for them after several days. So we will just have to do our own wrapping. Besides, that would be a fun activity for Dindin and I.

Well, Merry Christmas everyone! πŸ˜€

    Our Christmas is kinda old and showing its age already.. Its as old as my eldest son (8 years old) so I am really planning to buy a new one.. hopefully I could find a nice and not-so-pricey Christmas tree.. so I could really buy a new one. Time to hit the bazaar this weekend na talaga.

    Merry Christmas!

    The tree turned out so cute! And I’m sure the best part was watching your daughter have fun. That’s one of my favorite parts of Christmas … my girls are 14 and 10 and for the past few years, I just bring up the decorations and set up the tree itself, then let them go to town. It’s fun to see how they decorate the tree and the rest of the house … I never know what’s going to end up where LOL! They’re much more creative than me, who would just put the same decorations in the same place year after year.

    I have a little bird tree with nothing but birds and I have it in my hallway where the main entrance is. Everyone loves seeing it when they come thru the door. It is sometimes the smaller things that make the biggest impact.

    Merry Christmas!

    it isn’t about the size of the tree but the memories that it brings around it. I think its a great tree, and probably easier for DinDin to help.

    Wow! That’s a decked out little tree! We have a little tree as well but ours isn’t as fancy. Though, it is Hello Kitty themed so that’s pretty neat. p.s. She is so incredibly adorable!

    We always put up a little tree in our son’s room. He is almost 5. He loves to help decorate it and we let him choose his ornaments for it. Star Wars is the theme this year. It’s adorable and loves to go to bed with his Christmas tree lights on for his night light. Sweet!!

    It doesn’t matter if your tree is measured in inches or feet, they are all lovely. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a Christmas tree that didn’t make me smile. Being in an apartment means my husband and I only put out little trees but we have several and they are one of the best parts of the holidays!
