We put up the Christmas tree on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Olivia was beside herself with excitement over getting to put on the first ornament.
Alyssa was too busy playing a game on the computer to get too excited but once I pulled her away from electronic devices, she participated pretty well.
All was well as we strung lights, hung bulbs and snowflakes but toward the end of the evening, we still hadn’t found our star.
Olivia couldn’t stand it. Where was the star? What about the star? Why hadn’t we found the star yet and put it on the tree?
I have five boxes of Christmas decorations. FIVE. I know, it’s ridiculous. I was lucky that the first one I opened contained the ornaments for the tree.
But it took me several days (you know, what with having to leave the house for work and all) to go through the rest of the boxes.
And of course the star was in the fifth box. Of course it was.
But all is well in Miss Olivia’s world. The star has been placed on top of the tree and Christmas can commence.
