#funfriday / our ginormous tree PART II

#funfriday is here again!

Last Friday, I shared how our ginormous real Christmas tree crashed in the living room floor

Here’s an update to how we ended up late Friday night:

You won’t find any expensive ornaments – they are all from Sam’s Club a few years ago. You won’t see a tree skirt that fits. The tree leans into the corner so as not to FALL AGAIN hahahah!

There’s likely sap on those white curtains behind the tree and if you come to my house you’ll leave with pine needles on the bottoms of your feet.

The thing that is most exciting about our imperfect tree is the toy train running underneath. My papa Willie would be so very proud. He always loved having a train under the tree. My dad actually tried to continue that tradition in our family several years ago by purchasing a train for Kayla as her Christmas gift. I have to admit that it sat in our garage a few years without making it under the tree….oooops.

But, with a crashing tree and 2 excited little girls – this year was the perfect time πŸ™‚

They sit at night and watch the train go round and round – each taking turns stopping and starting again. There’s something magical about sitting in a dark room with Christmas lights and a little train.

Kinda makes you want to curl up with some hot chocolate and watch The Polar Express, right? “Hot, Hot, HOT – we got it, Hot, Hot, HOT!”

Happy Friday, friends! Make some memories with the ones you love.

And here’s a few smiles from Kayla and Kylie to start your weekend out right πŸ™‚
