R Is For Respect That Each Of Us Should Show - 4Ms

Our tree is up. The kids wanted to put all the ornaments on. I let them. Surprisingly I felt relaxed about letting them do it. See I'm usually a control freak and just know they will hang them slight and then they fall off, but I thought, why not just let it go. Just let it go.

They, we all enjoyed it.

Is your tree up? Will you be putting one up?

  1. I LURVE Mariah's Christmas stuff. Yesterday I bought the new Michael Bublé Christmas record. Its brilliant!

  2. I can't wait for our tree to be up, the kid's are driving me crazy I must get it in a couple of days.
    Liking this song from Mariah, I have not heard it before.
    I'm looking forward to your joining us at African Bloggers Community
    Have a great week ahead.

  3. Hi Colette. I'm thoroughly enjoying Mariah's song - a truly powerful song!
    Have a blessed week.

  4. Yep, yep our tree is up! It's hard to not be a bit of a control freak, especially when your kiddos are small. I think all moms tense up. I know I wish I were less anxious with our kiddos. I was a bit uptight when I shouldn't have been. I guess that's why grandmas are seem so wonderfully patient with wee ones because they already learned this valuable lesson. I'm happy y'all had a grand time. Love Mariah Carey's selection for this week's MMMM. =D

  5. Mariah has such a beautiful voice, and I like her Christmas tunes more than her regular songs. Wow, it IS cold where you are!

  6. Good song. Never had heard it before.

  7. Love your song choice! :) I did finally get the tree up yesterday - Princess Nagger and I will be loading it with decorations today when she gets home from school. :)

    Happy Birthday, Mikey! Here’s a Box of Rocks in this Winter Wonderland because Santa Claus is Coming to Town. Who? Santa Baby!

  8. I have that CD, I am going to find it so I can listen to them all!!

  9. We seem to moving at a snail's pace this Christmas. The tree is up but still not completely decorated. I'm finding the holiday all very overwhelming this year.

  10. Whoops! I hit "publish" before I finished commenting. Love your music pick this week! He's the reason for the season. :-)

    Merry Christmas!

  11. I'm not usually a Mariah Carey fan, but I do love her Christmas album.
    Thanks for sharing this beautiful song.
    So glad you had fun putting up the tree with your kids. I remember doing it with my kids, the ornaments were always on the lower third of the tree, but we left them there because it was such a great memory. =)
