Trimming The Tree

The Monday after Thanksgiving we decided to set up our Christmas tree. The boys had the day off of school, and were so excited about getting ready for Christmas. We were getting things back into shape after having company, so I told the boys they had to get their rooms cleaned first. They were so excited to set up the Christmas tree, that they cleaned their rooms quickly and without any fuss!

I know you should hang the stockings by the chimney with care, but at our house the chimney is in use! We hung the kid's stockings in the living room doorway.

Somebody was taking a break!
We each had jobs. Cole's job was to test the lights.
Logan used my $8 vacuum to clean up some of the tree needles for me.
Trevor helped me get the lights on the tree and plugged in.
FINALLY! They got to start hanging ornaments.
Here's our finished tree. Later we went to Wal-Mart and bought a star for the top. Growing up we always had angels on top of the tree, but this year I wanted to try something different.

When we were all done I said, "Hmmm. . . . something's missing. . . ." Then I went to my stash and put some presents under the tree. If I had thought the boys were excited before, they were doubly excited after they saw the presents!
