The past few years I have pretty much let the kids decorate our Christmas tree. I help put the ornaments on the top while they do the bottom. Although this year Bailey liked standing on the step stool to help me. Jesse liked decorating too but Jack well he was more into undecorating if you know what I mean! Anyway, I have given up the need to have perfect tree with evenly placed ornaments. It is so much more fun to see a big clump of ornaments all on one branch! They get so excited and can't wait to put the next one on! I love our tree. It is perfect!
