Our Tree

Our Charlie Brown Tree

This is what I did tonight while both kids slept at the same time (!!!) and Aaron was away playing Halo something or another with guys. Yeah, it’s a bit silly to have a tree painted on drop cloth and hung on the wall but it’s totally 2 babies and 2 cats proof. I was inspired by my friend who painted a Christmas tree on the wall because they are in the middle of moving this holiday season.

The photo makes it look a bit awkward but I think that’s because I’m an awkward photographer! It’s really rather cute in person. Well, rustically cute. I kept on repeating “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful” like a mantra while putting it together. All things considered, I’m happy with the results. Someday, when the kids are older and the cats are dead, I’ll have an extravagant and gorgeous tree. In the mean time, I’ll embrace what I do have with my whole heart.

    Yes, exactly. Doesn’t have to be perfect to be perfect!

      It’s so hard for me to remember that, esp. since if I don’t think I’ll do it right to begin with, I won’t do it at all! But I had so. much. fun. painting it that I think it’ll help spur me on next time. šŸ˜€

    This is great! I don’t have many problems with my cats bothering the tree, just an occasional ornament that gets knocked down when they are frisky.. however, last year when my son was not quite one, he broke about 10 ornaments because they were “balls!” šŸ™‚

      hehe! I think my 2 yr old would leave it be well enough but my 2 cats like to perch in the trees and knock ornaments off like a sporting event.

    For my money, if it makes you happy, and makes you smile, if it makes your kids eyes light up, then it’s perfect.

    Great idea!
