Oh Christmas Tree

time to trim the tree!!….but we can’t say that around here because cooper thinks its time to get the clippers out and cut the tree…learned that lesson the hard way!

last year i borrowed this idea, from a fellow blogger, of having a box of ornaments for each child…last year when i put the decorations away i separated them into 2 boxes.

Cooper’s method was to spread them all out to get a good look at all of them.

and then they dive under!

Your tree is beautiful. I love the idea of a box of ornaments for each child. Our kids still love to decorate, but after they find their 5 or 6 favorites they are done and want to watch the Christmas movie we always watch each year. So...the tree doesn't get completed until I finish up, but we all did pitch in and I love the time we spend together in the tradition.

Holy cow! You deserve an award for the two boxes of ornaments idea! What a great way to stop al the fighting over who gets to do which ornaments! So smart! your tree pics are so awesome. I love them. Ours never turn out, I try every year, but oh well.
