Oh Christmas Tree

We finally brought our tree in out of the garage and decorated it. It has a very small trunk, so my quick thinking husband had to rig something up to get it fit in our tree stand. I think he did a great job.

It wasn't a perfect shaped and full tree, but it holds the lights and ornaments. The presents will fit nicely under it. Chuck did a great job finding it.

Leland put the star on top. She kept screaming at first, saying that the branches were scratching her legs. Chuck finally was able to get her close enough to put the star on.

The girls are very excited the tree finally is decorated. They did a great job helping.

We collect Christmas tree ornaments throughout the year when we travel (borrowed this idea from a friend, Chrissy J. I remember talking to her about it one time during VT and it stuck with me). I love pulling out the ornaments and remember all the fun trips we have been on. It's hard to find cute, inexpensive ornaments sometimes, so we will get a key chain or magnet and add some ribbon to it.

Here are our new ornaments added to our tree this year.
