We had 2 extra sets of hands to help us decorate the tree this year. William is at the age now, where he actually is a help. Abbey wants to help, but really, she usually makes more work! However, I only added the pictures that look like she's doing something constructive! ;-) So we had a really BIG tree to put up this year, since we are sharing Ed & Gail's 8-foot tree. That's 4 more feet than last year!! There were a lot of branches to cover, but I think it turned out really pretty! The star wasn't in the same boxes as the rest of the stuff, so when I took the picture below, it's not on there. But never fear - we have one now! William made extra sure of it! Or in other words, he drove Ed crazy talking about it for 2 days, that he got right into the attic and got that star down before William could say another word about it!
