About Marina

Marina is the grateful, Texas-based, Mommy of a book-loving, 9 year old daughter, a 5 year old son who loves all things that fly and a serene 1 year old daughter. Her husband (and best friend) is her biggest support as she shares snippets from the awesome life God has blessed them with on Mommy Snippets.

What tides her through each day?...A hot cup of cardamom chai and Philippians 4:13!

    Agreed! And when they’re gone, I’ll probably still clump some ornaments together and put all their old handmade ones on the tree because that’s just how it’s supposed to look!!

  2. 2

    Absolutely! We all have fun decorating together and then enjoying our work, why bother with perfection when you can have a blast decorating it together!

    My kids love decorating the Christmas tree. We get the lights and beads on and then let them go nuts. My husband and I fill in the holes and the top of the tree. Works great!

    Do I really want a perfect Christmas tree when they grow up though? I’m so used to the cotton-ball bearded Santas that I don’t think I could ever let them go.

    Such a cute photo!

    My boys have always been allowed to help us decorate the tree – mine isn’t ever perfect and I’m ok with that!

    My middle wouldn’t let me decorate without him! He does pretty good not clumping too!

    In our house the dog helps too!

    I use to be more “perfect” about it. But that last couple years I just let them do what they want. It’s better that way!!

    Awww… my oldest has always decorated our tree. This year she gets the tree in her room, to keep it away from her 14 mo old twin brothers. She is BEYOND excited.

    love the photo and the quote. I often have to resist moving the ornaments around lol

  14. 14

    What a perfect statement! To any outsider, we might not look like we have the perfect Christmas tree because my daughter makes just about all decorating decisions and loves to make her own ornaments, but all that matters is we know that it is perfect and decorated with love!

  15. 15

    My boys have their own little tree that they love to decorate!

  16. 16

    Absolutely sweet! Happy belated WW

    Like the pic – but LOVE the quote! I dont care how messed up our tree looks or if all the ornaments are on the bottom half of the tree- i know that it brings my son so much pride and joy to tell everyone he did it by himself!!

    My grandsons loved decorating our Christmas tree this year! They were so careful with the placement of the ornaments!
