Putting Up The Christmas Tree

This morning, Esara, Caldirwen and I put up our Christmas tree. A bit late, but we didn't get around to it before now. Here's some pictures:

And now, we're finished: We also hung the stockings and decorated the fireplace:
Now, we don't do Santa Clause, but we do still hang our stockings. :)
Of course bubby (ty) has to have a stocking:

How old are Esara and Caldirwen?

Chloƫ said...

Beautiful!!! I love Christmas decorations! The tree looks very nice.

Eldarwen said...

~Jo~
Esara is 12 and Caldirwen will be 11 on Dec. 19th. :)

Thanks! I know, Christmas decorations are so pretty. The only "problem" was our tree lights (which have green wire, not white) weren't working, so we had to use our outside lights. LOL =D We don't put up outside lights anymore, so that wasn't really a problem, just the fact that we have white wire hanging on our tree. Kinda tacky, don't ya think? LOL :)

Love & hugs

I've still got to help my parents put ours up. We went down to a tree farm and picked a really nice one out. It's snowing right now. :D

Eldarwen said...

~Chris~
Yeah, out here there is no "pickin' out a tree". :/
I wish I could have the experience of getting to pick one (and no, I don't mean walking through Wal Mart to find one). LOL =D
It's snowing? It snowed here yesterday, but didn't stick. :P Stupid wet snow!

Christmas tree assembly and decorating is so fun!

Eldarwen said...

~Elizabeth~
I know, it is! :D
I had a lot of fun with Esara and Caldirwen. We always play Christmas music (when we put up the tree) and dance. Then we play around in the garlands and take pics. But those showed our faces, so I couldn't share them with the blog world. :)

Love & hugs,
Eldarwen

Eldarwen said...

Love & hugs,

I posted the "mysterious broccoli post" today :)

Jo March said...

I'm just the comment queen today :P I have another question, if you don't mind me asking :)

How long ago were your sisters adopted, and was it domestic (in the US) or international? We've been surrounded by adopting families lately, and it's excited my interest in the whole thing. I heard of all different kinds of adoptions, so when anyone mentions that they've been adopted or siblings have been, I get really interested and end up asking quite a few questions.....

Eldarwen said...

~Jo~
Yes, Esara and Caldirwen's adoption was domestic. We adopted them 6 years ago. The adoption anniversary is November 22. :) They first came to our home in May of 2003. I don't mind the questions. :)

Love & hugs,
Eldarwen

Taylor said...

So, were Caldirwen and Esara sisters before you adopted them? The two girls we adopted, Sarah and Emily, were not sisters before we got them from Vietnam.

Saerwen said...

I LOVE THE PICTURES!!! I love Christmas trees and your is beautiful! =D We don't have ours yet (bummer =D) =D

God Bless You And Your Family,
Saerwen

Eldarwen said...

~Taylor~
Yes, they were sisters before we adopted them. :)

~Saerwen~
Thanks! I know, they are beautiful! Ours is... interesting. We have lights with white wire and crazy ornaments! :D

Love & hugs,
Eldarwen

Saerwen said...

We have some crazy ornaments too. =D


God Bless You And Your Family,
