My little elves helped me put it up.
Both Sophie and Owen enjoyed putting the snowflake ornaments on the big tree. We have a very well-decorated lower third of a tree.
I took care of the top two-thirds.
We think the finished product looks pretty good, if we do say so ourselves.
The kids and I were working on the big tree, our "pretty" tree. When Greg and I first got married, we didn't have many ornaments (okay, one, that we bought on our honeymoon). I wanted to do a pretty, thematic tree that wouldn't cost a fortune to fill with ornaments the first year. So, I chose snowflakes. I've been collecting snowflake ornaments since then.
We do have a little "Charlie Brown" tree that we put other ornaments on. Those are the kids' ornaments they get each Christmas (we've only a few of those since the kids are so young yet), our anniversary ornaments (we were married around Christmas and buy an ornament on each anniversary wherever we are celebrating), and gift ornaments that we've been given. This year I left the breakables off because I'm not sure what Owen will do with the trees yet. Someday, we're going to have to switch the trees because we're getting quite a collection on the little tree and it may fall over someday!
