The kids were so excited to decorate the tree this year! Usually Garth and I decorate when the kids are sleeping to avoid crisis and broken ornaments. Last week, we got all the decorations up and the tree put together (yes, I gave in last year and we got a fake one) but it got too late to do ornaments. So the next night while Garth was playing basketball, me and the kids decorated the tree. They actually did a great job. There was very little fighting about who got to put which ornament on, none were broken, and I only had to break up a few "clumps." Since Sydney can't reach very high, lots of her ornaments ended up together. It was a very fun evening trimming the tree with my kids.
