Christmas Star 2

The Star On The Tree Doesn’t Go As Planned. Welcome To The Holidays.

My daughter woke up the day after Thanksgiving and took down every turkey-related decoration down because CHRISTMAS. And the biggest decoration on her mind was the star at the top of the tree.

After multiple hours of getting our tree from the lot to the house to the container and straight along with the yearly debating and fact-checking as to whether it’s a white lights or colored lights year (color! boo!) added to the annual yet accidental breaking of at least two ornaments I love, we were finally ready to place the star at the top of our rather large Christmas tree.

The ladder was brought in and used as unsafe as most holiday fun should be done.

I’m sure there were kids doing less safe things today.

She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. This year, our tree ended up being too tall to fit a star between it and the ceiling so our star is shoved in the middle of the branches toward the top.

    Womp Womp Womp indeed.
    But a sense of humor is my favorite gift.
    So.
