My husband took this picture Sunday as we were getting ready for church and I love it for 2 reasons. Of course, I think its a sweet little picture of Amelia all dressed up and curious about the little choo choo train, but I also love it because it shows off Isabella's tree decorating talent. All those ornaments you see were hung by Isabella. Saturday we put up the tree and decorated it. We decided to do artificial again this year -- I don't like artificial trees and we don't have the prettiest artificial tree, but with Amelia crawling and grabbing everything it seemed better for this year. Oh - and the fact that a live tree here would cost us a small fortune was a pretty big deciding factor. I don't know how Isabella remembered, but I told Kenny that it was pretty sad when he mentioned to her about putting a Christmas tree up, she ran back to the attic and said "The tree's up there, Daddy". Isabella had so much fun decorating the tree and it was cute to watch her. She likes to overlap several ornaments on one branch. :) I'll have to take a picture of the little tree she decorated in her room as well -- she must have that "picasso" type of artistic eye. Anyway, our tree actually does look really pretty (mostly if you keep the tree lights on) I'll try to post some Christmas tree/decoration pictures later.

Sooo adorable!!!! I can't think of a more perfect gift to have under your tree...even if it is an artificial tree. :o)

I seen this picture and thought, "How Adorable Is She?" And she is growing so fast. And Isabella did a great job decorating the tree. Casey likes to decorate too. This year is the first that all the ornaments didn't go on the same branch. :)
(and mine is artificial too) But mine is by choice, I don't like the smell of pine. I know I am weird.:)
