We finally got our tree decorated last night. It’s been up and lighted for a week, but no ornaments. I’ve been too busy unpacking moving boxes to search for decorations.

Many hands make light labor

But the kids volunteered to do the decorating for me. So they worked on the tree while I continued to sift through all our books and clothes and kitchen utensils. Trying to find a new place to put everything. Or at least a place for the things we most need to keep.

So here’s what our tree looks like now:

The kids decorated the tree by themselves this year.

There aren’t any ornaments on the highest branches, because the little ones couldn’t reach without a ladder, which I was using in another room. But the job they did is plenty good enough for me! And they seem happy with it, too.

On the topic of Christmas trees, the following new party game printable will test how much you know about this beloved tradition.

    1. Hi, Beth.

      I racked my brain when this message first came in, but couldn’t come up with anything specific. Then I’m afraid it got buried in my inbox and forgotten until I stumbled across it again just now. So sorry about that!

      If your zoom party has already taken place, I hope you found a way to have a good time together, despite covid restrictions. If not, you might consider sending a link to one of our printable games, and racing to see who can finish it first. You can browse them here: https://www.flandersfamily.info/web/tag/christmas-game/

  1. I volunteer in the Operating room waiting lounge at our local hospital. I bring in copies of Christmas games for families to play. (hopefully it takes their minds off the surgery for a few minutes)

    1. What a great idea, Carolyn! Hospital stays are no fun (unless you’re there to welcome a new baby). I’m happy to think my games might provide a little distraction for the people in your waiting room. Thanks for doing that.
