Monaghan Family Tree Decorating

One Monaghan holiday tradition is that we all get together to decorate the Christmas tree at my parents' house. Last Sunday, we were in Lowell to celebrate this tradition with Mairead's Nana and Grampy, her aunts and uncles, and a few friends. Thanks to everyone for making the time to keep this tradition going!

Mairead was really good about the whole thing. She did not try to take ornaments off the tree and watched intently as we decorated it.

She did really like this beaded garland, but not for the tree! She was so cute- I don't know where she learned to try on necklaces, but it seemed to come very naturally to her!

She was not, however, a big fan of this Santa. He moves, and she was a little thrown off by that.

I think her favorite part was the lights on the tree. She just sat and looked at them in her cute little Christmas PJs (thanks, Jean!).
We will be decorating our own tree this weekend, so I will have more holiday pictures to share!
