Decorating the Tree

I've decided to post some photos that were taken last week while we were decorating our Christmas tree. I suppose our family was a little late with the decorating, but we only got our tree the Sunday before Christmas since I didn't want to miss out on the fun! We're an adventurous bunch, so not only do we have a real tree but we usually cut it down ourselves. My sister did most of the sawing this year, which she was happy about. I was just happy that we got the perfect tree.

I got to put the angel on the top of the tree, which is my absolute favourite job.

Can you please just take a moment to marvel at my incredible balancing abilities?
I was on my tiptoes on the top step of the stool while leaning forward. Impressive. But somehow my family deemed this safe, not feeling the need to spot me or even keep the stool from wobbling.

My sister seems to never be able to be in a photo with her eyes open. She definitely has the same blinking problem my mother has. Here's just a few of my attempts, but I gave up before we got a good one.
Outfit twenty-five was definitely the coziest out of all my outfits thus far. It's also the outfit that has made me love belting that top. My mom had just given me that old belt of hers when I was looking for a brown belt to wear the night before, so I decided to experiment by belting one of my favourites tops. It's nothing crazy, but I've never had a belt that could serve this purpose so I wasn't sure if I would like it. Turns out I love it! It's not quite as cozy as wearing the shirt loose, but it certainly makes it look more presentable.

Outfit breakdown: grey leggings + red plaid shirt + brown belt
