the elves strike again!

when i saw this cartoon, i had to laugh, it looks a LOT like our tree!

although our elves were three and five years old, named t.willie and haley. and very cute. and quick. and pushy. and giddy with the power of "tree expression".

yeah, i let them just do what they wanted. unfortunately, i have no pictures of the little elves because i was exhausted at the time. do you see that spot at the middle (about half way up) the tree? where there is some ornament congestion? that's because they dragged a chair over and took turns adding ornaments RIGHT THERE!

look very closely here, at the bottom branches of the tree....LOTS of ornaments!!!!

i am usually very picky about my tree but this way was a lot more relaxing for ME! at one point, haley decided to move away from the tree and was hanging things randomly around the room.

oh, but they had fun and it was fun to watch them. kids and christmas- it doesn't get any better than that.


  1. You are so right!! It's just not Christmas without kids (and kittens)... :)

  2. Hahaha that's like the opposite of our tree growing up - couldn't hang anything too low or the dog would knock them off/eat them!

  3. Priceless Christmas story, Jo....I love that you let the kids do it their own best way :) True Yuletide spirit! Go elves! LOL xoxo

  4. Joanne those kids will NEVER forget that tree decorating experience! I will be a wonderful memory for life!
    Merry Christmas, wonderful and peaceful holidays and a Happy New Year for you and your family! Hugs to you! Yael
