Decorating the tree. 
This was the first year that she had the attention span for it, and honestly I expected her to loose interest after the first couple of ornaments.
 But she turned out to be in for the duration...methodical and meticulous.
I was quite impressed with her skills!
 And there were gratuitous moments of complete four-year-old joy, like when these little glass birds formed a family and had conversations on her fingertips.
 I can't tell you how much I love that she had written "Mommy" (give or take and "m") on her own arm that morning.
 Giving special attention to the precious feathered white dove.
 A last few ornaments ready to be hung.
 Random bursts of holiday joy...
and a spontaneous final hug for the lovely, fragrant tree!
