Childlike Christmas - unintentionally busy

This is the spot where the couch was. Now there is a Christmas tree. This happened this morning.

Our couch and chair were on loan from my mother-in-law. I wanted to get some new furniture, so we arranged to move her sofa and chair to storage. For some reason, that didn't actually happen until this morning.

The couch had accumulated a lot of junk beneath it and behind it. So as I was frantically trying to clean up this fantastic mess, the guy shows up at the door to fix the cracked tile in the bathroom. (We put in the work request about a week ago and I forgot all about it.)

So my hubby and my brother hauled the furniture out, I cleaned the living room with three enthusiastic munchkins underfoot, and the repair guy rushed in and out with various tools and minor demolition mess.

But as you can see, now it's all clean, and the Christmas tree actually touches the floor this year. The kids have been playing there nonstop.

I'm not sure how this relates to a Childlike Christmas. It was just our crazy morning today.

Yay! Getting rid of loaned furniture is such a NICE feeling, isn't it? I guess it's just the month to get rid of stuff.

I've never seen your little tree before - it's really cute!

Well now you have room for all of that loot that your kids will be getting from said Mother-in-law. It will be super fun for them and I think your tree looks cute right there.

It sounds busy but FUN. I bet the babies are excited by their tree. I think this is all so cool. My dear Kess, I wish you and Ryan, Alex, Holly and Clare a wonderfully Merry Christmas. I think it's neat that you will be home this year for Christmas.

I think children playing around a Christmas tree is truly a Childlike Christmas, and a beautiful site. Thanks for sharing.
Wishing you and your dear family a most blessed Christmas.
