My house seems happier during the holidays. I felt that when we had bats swinging from the ceiling for Halloween and I feel that now with our pine tree in the living room. Not only our home, but the whole family carry an attitude of love and giving.
Zara especially likes the tree. I constantly catch her pulling down ornaments and eating the tinsel. She's at that age where everything goes in her mouth. It took us four iPad chargers to realize Zara was the one breaking them with her slobber. Oh that girl!
