This year, Daddy had a little elf help him put up the Christmas Tree. We opted to use our fake one that I bought for a great deal on Black Friday a few years ago. I think once the boys are a little older, we'll make a day of it and go out to cut down our own tree. But, for now, this is 7 1/2 foot, pre-lit fir will make do!
First he helped Daddy put the tree together....
Then he helped Mommy decorate it. I didn't use any balls this year, because our little elf LOVES ball. I thought I'd save myself (and my ornaments!) from the hassle of cleaning up broken shards of glass everyday. I also didn't put anything on the bottom 1/3 of the tree or in the back. Let's say, it's pretty bare looking from some angles... but it's still beautiful!
Aidan absolutely loves the Christmas tree and says goodnight to it every night before bedtime. I can't wait to see his face on Christmas morning after Santa has come!! Christmas is so wonderful when you have children of your own to share it with. :)
