Trimming the Tree

I am a firm believer in not putting up Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving, but as soon as we got back from Austin it was time to get in the holiday spirit. With the Pandora Christmas station on in the background and cups of hot chocolate in hand, we started by tackling the tree. 

We stuck with our fake tree this year, but I think it is time to switch to the real thing next year. Ava didn't care one way or the other though...she was super excited to hang ornaments on the "kiss-mas tee." 

And it was very serious business.

Ava was very particular about where the ornaments should go. I wonder where she gets that from ;).

It was so much fun decorating the tree with her, and it's the first of many Christmas traditions we hope to continue over the years. 

Enjoying Christmas through your child's eyes is truly magical.

And Ava only managed to drop one ornament. I call that a win.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
