Trimming the tree

My children have a slight obsession with Christmas tree ornaments. They couldn't wait to unpack them from the attic boxes and then play with them like newfound toys.

Rich wanted to string up lights outside and then on the tree before allowing the girls to hang the ornaments. Oh. My. Goodness. Every five minutes, I would hear, "When can we decorate the tree?"

So after some of this

I love it. This post is gorgeous - picture stories are the best. My 3 girls decorated our tree at Thanksgiving and redecorate it daily since. They seem to like to hang all the ornaments on one poor branch so every night I go and move them around. Pointless, I know, but I can't help myself.

I love the story these pictures tell! Children bring back so much of the magic of Christmas, don't they? Your three girls are just beautiful!
