This is really the first year that Jordan did all the decorating of the little tree. She couldn't believe I let her do the whole thing. Yea, I can get a little anal when it comes to decor, I have a crazy sense of order that can take the fun out of things for other people (even though the organizing part is pure bliss for me). This year is just let it go...I was so proud of myself and I REALLY resisted fixing all of the ornaments once Jordan went to bed (to be honest I moved a few, just because they were backwards). For the first few days the tree in all its disorganized, unbalanced charm disturbed my sense of order but after a while it really began to make me smile. Remembering the smile on my little girl's face as she took total control of decorating something important to our family makes me realize THAT is what life is all about. Letting go...relaxing and living in the moment. I hope we all do that this Holiday Season...I know I am planning on making a REAL effort to just let things go in the coming year and just living in the moment, soaking up the awesomeness that is my child and finding the beauty in the little things that are perfectly imperfect.
giving the snowman bunny ears...goofy kid!
