My favorite Christmas decoration has to be the Christmas tree. I think the best thing about putting it up is getting out the ornaments and reminiscing. We have only been married 4.5 years but we already have a ton of ornaments that are sentimental. We have ornaments from our tiny family of 2 and then ones from when both the boys came into our family. Our tree is not fancy...but we aren't fancy people-it's just right for us.
This year we let Jackson have his way with the bottom of the tree. We gave him all the "non-breakable" ornaments and let him decorate to his hearts content. Theornaments on the bottom of the tree is a little thin but I'm not having to worry about little hands (aka Hudson) destroying things.
Jackson was less that thrilled when he thought that Hudson would be helping. We had to remind him that his elf was watching and that straightened him up quick. Ha! I think our elf will be visiting once a month-just to check in.
Here is our finished product, not the most beautiful tree but our kids love it and that is what matters.
(And are you loving the fact that the bottom lights don't work? We plugged it in and the whole bottom section is dark. I'm thinking it might be time for a new tree...or at least some new strands of lights.)
The finished product. John Deere tree skirt-check, Tractor ornaments-check, 1 happy boy- BIG CHECK!
And here is Hudson's tree. Since he is the newest in the family, he has the smallest tree. Next year his will be bigger and we will continue to add ornaments to his tree. Are you loving his camo tree skirt?
