My 2 little Elves and I finally got the tree up last weekend! I had a couple extra helper's this year which made things very comical. Emma is SOOO excited about Christmas this year and wants to be involved in every part of it! It literally takes me about 2 hours to "fluff" the branches and get it just right...i'm very picky about this part! So I did most of that while Emma and Grant were taking a nap. Of course, when she woke up she had to help me finish and daddy held her up to put the top piece on the tree..she said "I did a great job didn't I?" Grant was also very involved in the decorating process...he helped "unload" the decorations and scatter them everywhere for me! LOL He was in complete amazement when we plugged the lights in and decided he would tangle them up for me. At one point, he decided to start banging some ornaments on the floor and mean mommy said "No sir"...his pitiful face in the picture tells exactly how he felt about that! LOL Although I was sick and not feeling very chipper, I enjoyed sharing this experience with the kids and seeing their little faces light up when we finally finished! Emma plugs in the lights first thing every morning and always says "WOW...this sure is a gorgeous tree"..gotta lover her!
