Fruit loops and popcorn! A family tradition.
As silly as it seems, fruit loops and popcorn have become a family tradition. Mix in a needle and some fishing line and you have Christmas Tree garland.
I'm not sure how it even started, but one year the boys and I ventured into the pantry to make garland. And this was what we came up with.
It adds the cutest bit of whimsy to our tree!
And we typically sit in the living room, on the floor in front of the tree. The lights of the tree light up the room. Christmas music on. No tv. No nothing else. Just us.
This year, we surfed Spotify for silly Christmas songs, I want a hippopotamus for Christmas, was the favorite of the night.
Now, don't get me wrong. The boys lose their attention for this tedious project quick. So we only did about 6 strands this year. Just enough for the front.
And I'm ok with it.
Again. It's real life. Just a tree full of memories. Nothing fancy, or over the top.
A family tradition.
