Decking the Halls

We put up the tree on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. After we got back from visiting family. Lily was super excited. This was really the first year she was into putting the ornaments on the tree. 
She kept saying "Santa is going to love this. It is so beautiful" . It totally cracked me up. 

Most of the ornaments ended up on the bottom half and in one little area. Avery mostly just carried around ornaments and didn't get very many on the tree. She is pretty much leaving it alone too. Which is amazing. 

I also made the girls an Advent countdown with a bag for each day until Christmas. They have little toys and candy.  As you can see Lily was super excited. So far we have talked about Jesus' birthday and she sorta gets it. Anyone have any good kid book recommendations on the religious story of Christmas?

Nothing like chocolate at 7 am!
