Kandiceīs postive take on undecorating

I had posted this before on the countdown, now Sheila asked me to post in a separate thread...since the countdown is pacing so fast...it is almost impossible for everyone to read everything....so

On Friday I told Kandice that will be taking the decorations off the tree and take the tree outside.....Of course she was bummed....but almost immediately her little, sweet face lit up and she said: Mama...it will be horrible without the tree....BUT undecorating the tree is just as much fun as decorating the tree....because now we are decorating the INSIDE of the BOXES.......I couldnīt help but smile at Kandice for finding something positive about something...that she obviously found a sad thing to do....
We should all take a bit from that!!! From now on...we are not undecorating the tree......we say......Letīs DECORATE THE BOXES!!!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

She is a doll! I love the way kids look at things. They can take a negative situation and make it all okay!

That's a good idea. My son was sad to see everything taken down too. I decided to leave up our small 4 1/2 foot tree in the dining room so he can decorate it for every holiday this year. We got started on it last night. It seemed to make him happy so I'm thinking this may be a new tradition for us.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1357653197.339534.jpg

I will Sheila....I think it is selfish of us to be sad to take the decorations down....we have to think of the boxes, too!!! They want to be pretty, too

Lacim...thatīs a real good idea...and the tree looks lovely....I am now thinking of getting a small artificial tree for Kandice to do the same.......I can already see our Easter tree, with paper eggs and paper rabbits hanging on it
