my true love gave to me ~ Decorating Grandma's tree
This is another newish tradition for us. The last couple of years the girls have casually decorated the grandparents tree. Like we happen to be at Grandma's so she pulls out the tree and they decorate it for something to do. This year we tried to organise for all her Grandkids to be there to do it as a family activity.
So as with most gatherings this is how it went:
Too much condensed milk in our chocolate balls made them into chocolate smooshWrestling between brothers threatening to break eachother and fragile ornaments
Heartattacks from Grandma freaking out over grandchildren falling down her stairs, off her varandah, typical kid inducing fears, causing her calm facade to disappear after about 40 mins.
Squealing and yelling
Unevenly decorated tree
All the kids fighting over whose Iphone they get to play with
But isn't that what Christmas is all about?
