Crazy Tree


Hadley talked me into colored lights for the tree this year. For the past 8 years I've used only white lights. I'm kind of a purist that way. I like things clean and simple. But she begged and I decided Christmas is more about making memories for my kids these days when that's a pretty easy thing to do...so I caved. Here's a crazy picture to show what life really looks like around here.

  1. What a cool picture.

    Kids definitely make you think about things. You start to realize that the color of the lights don't matter, their enjoyment and happiness is really what matters.

    You are such a good mom for being able to see that. Your girls are lucky. I hope I have as much insight as you do. I know it sounds sappy, but you really are a great role model for other moms!

  2. I love it! The picture is great...crazy in all the right ways. I love that you are creating memories for your girls. I can vividly remember the large outdoor bulbs of the lights on my grandparents house as I looked at them through the window while waiting for Santa. Such a special memory! -S
