As much as the kids enjoy decorating the tree, I’m sure the most excited person that looks forward to it each year is me.. I love hearing them laugh, and squeal w/ excitement. I asked them if they minded if we put up the tree a few days earlier than our normal Thanksgiving weekend tradition, and they definitely didn’t 😉
The little ones were super helpful by handing Kaylor ornaments.. We always shatterproof ones, so they are safe for them to handle. Rowen was full of energy, and had to be reminded that the ornaments were not balls for tossing.. lol He did well though, considering that he was just a baby last year at Christmas time. So far he’s even been leaving the tree alone.. He loves shouting, “Christmas tree!!!”..
I’d say they did a beautiful job w/ decorating it.. We may make some handmade decorations w/ burlap & twine, but all in all it’s finished up and looking Christmas-y 🙂
