We started getting a real Christmas tree two years ago.
Watching the excitement on our little ones faces as we walk among the huge Christmas trees looking for the perfect one, the twinkle lights shining above us, and the bustle of the people around us also looking for the Perfect tree, there’s nothing like seeing Christmas time through the eyes of your child.
The coldness of the night isn’t even noticed in the warm festive light.
We went to this small little Christmas stand near our home, this kind jolly man helped us find our tree, giving the girls candy canes and chatting away about how he has been in the business of Christmas Trees for over 14 years, how much it means to him that he is able to give most all the proceeds to charities, and what charities he is able to give to- and what each charity does for those they help.
His eyes just shone with such love as he talked about it- and the spirit of Christmas really was brought to us.
It made my heart so glad that we were creating these precious moments with our girls in a place that was full of love and truly lives what Christmas is all about.
Loving one another.
Our hearts were light as we drove off with our perfect tree.
Sending you the best of wishes this Holiday Season, and may the Spirit of Christmas be in our hearts all year round.
