Arbolito, arbolito...♪♪♪

Campanitas te pondré, quiero que seas bonito, que al Recién Nacido te voy a ofrecer ♪♪♪...This is a beautiful Christmas song offering the Christmas Tree to the Newborn Child, and that is the theme of my LO today.  December brings beautiful Christmas trees to the island and we can't wait to smell, touch and have a new one.  We always wait until December so they last longer.  Here in Puerto Rico we celebrate the 25th of December but also, the 6th of January when we celebrate the Epiphany, the coming of the Three Kings, or Wise Men to adore  baby Jesus.  So the tree stays put until January when the kids receive their last presents and then return to school shortly after!
OUAS challenge for this month is to journal about the thinsg we look forward in December, and one of them is the picking of the Christmas tree.  This year we found some funky ones, real ones painted in cool colors, I almost couldn't resist, they were so pretty.  We ended up picking an 8 footer that was perfect to hold our long collection of ornaments, so here it is!

see what I mean about those trees???

My journaling
A peek at what I did, since it was a mail box I saw fitting to xacto an entrance and write the date, and I couldn't resit to put some sparkle in the Fairy wings ;) !

And the final page, I used Nadia's beautiful sketch


And here is the song my LO's title is inspired in, it's a school play, but the song is perfect, enjoy, Milagros!
