Oh Christmas Tree

The weekend was still great even I was sick as a dog. I promised the kids the other week that we will put up the Christmas tree, I don't want to leave them disappointed. Ferald was at work that day hence we waited for him to come home. Decorating the Christmas tree has always been a family affair for us and the kids enjoy it the most. This Christmas is Prince second year and he was given the chance to put the star on top of the tree after we finished decorating it with gold and red ornaments. This tree was the biggest tree we ever had, it is 6 ft tall and require a bigger floor area. I am yet to buy those twinkling lights aka Christmas lights to complete it.
After having the tree ready I suddenly realize that Halloween is not over yet. I checked the web for events in Dubai for the Halloween, all are paid events and are happening quite far from our place. I was thinking of asking neighbors to join trick or treat, those who would like to participate can decorate their doors with spooky designs. We live in an apartment building and I actually have second thoughts in doing that as I am not sure how it will work. Still mama needs to find something for the kids this Halloween.
