Elli is ready to head out to the yard to begin assembling the Christmas Trees!
Emma has her shoes on and is ready to go… Where’s Baylee?
Found her! Uncle Tim looks like he’s ready to attack some trees too!
The top of the tomato cage is loose. We use some wire that we had laying around to close it up and make it functional.
See! Note* One could use electrical tape, a strong rubber-band, and other various options. We liked this one.
The girls quickly learned how to wrap the wire and tie it off.
They worked really well together.
I was actually quite impressed!
More close ups of the wire wrapping.
Elli’s turn… with the assistance of her sisters.
See how they left a little bit of wire from the tomato cage exposed at the top. This is intentional. We will be utilizing that space.
I love how quickly the girls made this project their own.
Baylee is finishing off the wire wrapping on the top of her tomato cage.
Now it’s Emma’s turn, and Bay’s assisting her.
Uncle Tim giving instructions on how the lights are going to be strung. They all look like they’re being punished, don’t they? Ha!
Elli decided to tackle a tree!
She had the help of her sisters (and uncle)… It was so cute to watch them all together.
Elli was a stud with the tie straps!
Uncle Tim helping with the final touches on the fifth tree… and…
Everybody say, “WE ARE SWEET!!!!”…. because LOOK… our beautiful trees!!!
Ta-Da!!!! Check these babies out!! Can you say, “FABULOUS?”
The girls were stoked…
We were stoked…
When their parents showed up, they were stoked!!! These are just rad trees!
We decided to check one out in the house to see it before it got dark. We loved it! We knew it was worth the work of making the other four!
Now for Silly Times with Baylee…
Then it was in to the house to make tacos and have a family dinner. FUN!!!
Dinner with the Todd Family (my sister’s fam)… Such a blessing!!! Check out the trees the girls made outside the window behind Tim!
Around the table. We went all out with the fancy paper plate China. I was just too beat to do dishes.
So blessed and happy!
I felt great contentment today. I feel so blessed to have been given the family I have. The Lord is so good. He has given me beyond measure.
And those tacos were stinkin’ good tonight! And those trees look pretty stinkin’ cool outside too!
Almost as good as the fellowship… but not quite!
Merry Christmas! Hope you have the opportunity to do a fun project that is reasonably priced with you kids, nieces and nephews or just for fun! They look amazing! Drive by our house and see… but please… If you do drive by, at least leave me a note. =D
Thanks for hanging out with our family today! A special thanks to Emma, Elli and Baylee for making this blog for us! They’re ROCKSTARS!!! From our family to yours, we sure hope you seize the opportunity to have this fun time with your kids. They loved it, and we’re all enjoying the outcome. It was quality time that cost less than a trip to the movies, and it gave us irreplaceable memories and left us with tomato cages that will be useful come spring, along with reusable lights and cages that are suitable for the same purpose come next Christmas. Can’t beat that! So, let us know if you decide to jump on board and have some “Tomato Cage Christmas Tree” fun! We’d love to hear about your experience! Please do come back and share with us! Also, remember there is a red stamp at the top of the post… If you have any questions, comments or just feel like chatting… Click there, and it’ll put you right to the place to make a post to me. I check back quite frequently. I will get back with you as soon as I am able. I get so excited to hear about everyone’s adventures. I know there are many of you who comment of Facebook too. =)
Okay, have a blessed day and the count down is REALLY here! Merry Christmas and happy shopping for all of you who are still making your purchases. I still need to get some stocking stuffers! Yikes!
