Inside, the barn was decorated with twinkly lights and Christmas decorations making it feel really magical and special.
The girls each chose a new decoration for the tree (Miss Boo would have loved to have brought Rudolph home...) which the lady parcelled up for them individually to carry. Before heading home the girls had a play on the toy tractors in the barn which we thought was such a lovely touch.
There's not a pine needle in sight in our car as the lovely people delivered it to our door for us - this was lucky as I'm not sure where we would have put it, it's a bit of a squeeze at the best of times with all 5 of us in the car :)
We (royal we!) put it in it's stand and put on the lights while Miss Tibs had a nap and then when she woke up we put some Christmas music on and everyone got involved. I love our Christmas Tree, it's a family activity that I hope we'll all do together for years to come. The warm glow of the lights on a cold, dark winter night are so comforting and cheery. All the decorations have been collected over the years and are really special to us. We have a couple for loved ones who are no longer with us so we can remember them even more at this time of year. The Christmas Tree symbolises the thing I love about Christmas most - family. Miss Boo said at bedtime "I love our Christmas Tree, it reminds me of (slight hesitation) Christmas."
I agree Miss Boo...It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas :)
