The Other Trees

So...we have a big Christmas tree in the living room. We do NOT have a themed tree because I'm really not crazy about the trees and ornaments that change from year to year. I always think of the memories that are attached to each of the ornaments on my tree, from Maggie & Ellie's hospital pacifiers to the bells that we used at our wedding. Every ornament is special in some way. Even the shatterproof red balls that we bought when I was pregnant with Ellie to replace the red glass balls that were breaking with each passing year are special.I bought a small tree for our bedroom (1/2 price at Hobby Lobby) and a little string of glitter-y beaded garland.
Ellie's tree is so sweet! It has silver glitter-y balls and little gingerbread cookie ornaments. She loves it!!

Maggie's tree is ALL Maggie. As if the zebra print and pink walls aren't overload enough she wanted to put all of the ornaments that she had made or picked out over the years (with the exception of that one ornament) on her tree again this year. I know, the tree is a little small for all of that stuff.

She also has our Noah's Gingerbread Ark in her room.
She loves it all!!!

And on a sad note, Big Daddy mistakenly thought that he had an exam on Monday and would be home this weekend. His dates were a week off and so now I'm going to have to break the news to Maggie that her Daddy will not be home on Saturday morning and that she'll have to wait another week. It's all she's talked about and she's been counting down days. She took the news much better than I expected, but we are all disappointed. While I can manage okay without Big Daddy for a couple of weeks, I feel really sad too. When I packed his bags on Sunday morning (right before he left, because he hadn't done it himself) I only packed enough for this week. Not only am I sad about him not being here this weekend, but I'm sad that he doesn't have more clothes. Sounds silly, but I feel like it's in my job description to make sure that everybody's taken care of.

So... what on earth will I do this Saturday??? I already have a few ideas!

I got a sad feeling when I read he wouldn't be coming home and you'd have to break the news to Maggie. At least she took it better than expected. Maybe the weekend will go more smoothly if you keep her mind occupied more than not. Cute trees. Andrew doesn't have one in his room (yet). I'm sure it wouldn't last like it would in a girls room. Last night, he nearly destroyed his manager scene that he made last year.
