Tradition has always been we all put up the tree...except this year! This time trying to catch a college student, a high schooler, the middle school boy just seemed a little too difficult and very unfair to the younger EXCITED ones. So...with the younger half of the family we began the tree project.Another tradition in our home is to make fun of our tree. This tradition has held fast. I am quite proud of my bargain of $21.49! IT was a $129.00 tree in its day. 10 years later and this scrawny little tree is going strong. When you live in every square inch in your home and you have 8 kids you need a tree that takes up as little space as possible. Barry likes to announce our tree is on a diet! It might be skinny, but it FITS!
5 year old is fluffing the tree with meticulous care!
Aww, sweet success of a tree up and decorated!
Seems like each year there is a little something different based on the ages of our kids. Having 3 boys under the age of 7 years means it is the year of the train!
