Lighting up the tree

As a kid I had a ceramic Christmas tree light in my room for the holidays as long as I can remember. I don't think these were too popular and I honestly thought it was just one of my moms made up traditions. I forgot about this now that it's been many many years since I've seen one. Until that is, my mom arrived with a tree for Callie! GaGa sent her the tree from her house to pass along the tradition. It was missing a star on top and a few lights my mom didn't pack so I ordered up the missing pieces on Amazon and we completed the tree today. Callie has it on all night and at nap time as an extra night light. She can turn the switch on by herself which makes it even more fun. She really likes it but surprise surprise D likes it even more. He is mesmerized by the lights and just wants to touch it. I think we will be in trouble when the real tree gets put up. 
Super cute seeing these kids look at it together. And I'm very thankful to pass on my somewhat odd family tradition. Keeping the movement going. Thanks Gag and Gig.
The only other person I recall having on of these was Taylor. Tay, I hope you have one for your kids too!

  1. Ok, I tried to comment but I don't know if it went through. They are adorable looking at the tree. We put our tree up because Griffin is so excited... I am not sure where the ceramic tree is, my mom is slightly disorganized with her decorations and many moves.
