The boys had lots of fun doing it, but Aaron and I weren't into it at all this year. I would've been happy to just have waited for a couple of weeks to put it up, which is NOT like me at all, as I'm always begging Aaron to let me put it up early.
Thank you Heidi for this beautiful decoration.
Although Noah never physically helped put up the tree, I just wanted things to be the same as other years, with him snoozing away on the couch while we all put the decorations up. I tried to hide the tears streaming down my face from the boys a few times, and just tried to make it as fun as possible for them. Even Aaron who said he wanted to put it up, said he felt like throwing it outside by the end of it. As much as we know where Noah is and will be with him again, it's still so hard as we try to do all the usual family things without him. I really wouldn't mind skipping Christmas all together this year.
We received these beautiful angel decorations from a friend after Noah passed away.
