Putting up the Tree!!

I am not going to lie, I am not a huge fan of decorating...I love having my house decorated for Christmas but I just hate putting it all out and trying to find a place for everything. Every year we try to put up the tree for family home evening. Rich pulled out the boxes and got the tree put together.
I had the kids do most the decorating. I was running on the treadmill right before and I was tired and not really in the mood. Alex was really excited that he got to out all the ornaments on the tree. I had to pretty much force Alexa to help.
I found these big sparkly snowflakes at the dollar store and bought a bunch of them to hang from the ceiling. I spent most the night tying the ribbon on them and then helping Rich hang them up. He wasn't too excited about my idea and putting all those tacks up in the celing but he was a pretty good sport and I think it turned out beautifully!
Rich put the finishing touches on the tree and then we got the kids to bed. Now we are ready for Christmas. December is always so busy and fun and it goes by too fast!!

Here is a look at the finished can get the idea of the snowflakes hanging from the ceiling but it really did look nice and it added alot to the room

It's good to know that someone else is going through the same thing as us because we had to FORCE Harrison to help us this year. He complained the whole time and made it miserable but I wasn't going to give in and let him go downstairs.
