Decorating the Christmas tree

On Friday evening my family decorated our Christmas tree.  We always have a real cut tree rather than an artificial one, even though we inevitably get a bit of needle drop during the 2 weeks the tree is in the house, however the smell of the tree in the house is well worth a small amount of mess.

The whole Sasha family helped with hanging baubles on the tree, even the babies.  I took photos of them all, but only 2 were worth sharing.
Laura hangs the handmade decoration her young owner made
Florence hangs the violin decoration
I'm doing some Christmas sewing for some of the dolls, but not as presents (I don't want eleventh hour present wrapping as the past 2 years!).

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

(I love the smell of the real tree too. It's best if apples hanging on there.)

Happy Christmas to you Anna and your family. Please thank your sweet daughter for always making me smile with her lovely big smile when I see her in photos!
Big hugs Sharon in Spain xx

I too think that there is nothing nicer than the aroma from a freshly cut fir tree, especially when you come into the warm room first thing in the morning BUT unfortunately over the last three years it has proved to be too much for me to handle so have had to resort to an artificial model.

Love how the Sasha Dolls have been encouraged to help the family decorate the tree. A case of 'All hands to the pump' makes light work of the job in hand.

I hope that you and your family had a very happy Christmas and that the dolls in your household were thrilled with their home sewn presents.
Best wishes for 2014.
