and now it feels like christmas. isa and i decorated the tree tonight and can now sit back and enjoy the view. sylvi just couldn't stay awake for all of the action, as she is getting caught up from a week of being sick and can barely make it to her normal bedtime without dozing off. but we saved lots of ornaments for her to put on tomorrow and will let her help with the angel as well. even though he doesn't necessarily agree, phil is sweet enough to indulge me in my "we must get a BIG tree" holiday impulse. what can i say? it's in my genes or something.
