advent activities – trimming the tree

The kiddos helped us put together the artificial tree.  As the designer and I would unfold the branches, the explorer would take them to the builder, who would put them on the stand.  As they got too high the dancer then took a turn helping. 

Of course the decorating was their favorite part…and is a continual project it seems.  🙂  We have designated the bottom half of the tree for their designing and redecorating pleasure. 

such concentration!

 A few years ago, their Gigi gave them a beautiful book for Christmas: Melrose & Crock, A Christmas to Remember by Emma Chichester Clark.  Holiday disappointments, hustle and bustle of the Season, making new friends, trimming the tree, and sharing a holiday to remember together…wonderful!
