Oh Christmas Tree

The kids finished up the tree today and I thought I would share.  The tree topper turned out really cute and it was simple to make.  The boys gathered some sticks from the woods near our house and one of the older boys placed them together to make a star shape.  I plugged up the glue gun and put glue in just the right places and we added another little star. 

The kids have also been busy stinging popcorn to go on the tree and I am so happy because I have always wanted to try this.  It looks sweet and I love that they all worked together to do it.  (You have never seen so many little pieces of popcorn all over the floor!  Thankfully it sweeps up easily!) 

Have you seen the commercial where the people are saying "done" to everything?  I want to be able to say that but I find myself saying, "not done" on most things.  There are many things left to do like wrapping gifts, and baking, and cooking, and cleaning, and getting ready for company, and delivering goodies and, and, and...  I'm trying not to stress out about anything and just enjoy making memories with the family.  I hope that is what you are doing too!
