Once we had selected our tree, cut it down, and set it up (tying it to the rafters to keep it straight and standing), it was time to decorate! First step, lights. Unfortunately, even though we checked all the strands of lights before putting them on the tree, one set decided to be unruly and only half of it work after putting it on the tree. So with a slight hiccup of having to go purchase another set of lights so our tree would not be only 3/4 lit, we were ready for the ornaments.
The kids had a great time helping put the ornaments on the tree and were actually fairly helpful! Then they decided they wanted to smother me with kisses. I love being smothered with their kisses.
I think it turned out really well!
