This year, the little boy played a much more major role in helping me trim the tree. The hubs and I put the lights around the tree, and the little one worked on putting on the different ornaments.
He needed a little bit of help reaching the higher limbs though, but did splendidly.
Our's is not one of those trees that have very coordinated picture perfect ornaments, but rather one that has a hodge podge of homemade, child-chosen, given-as-gifts, and personal favorites, as well as the mandatory ornament-of-the-year pieces.
And of course, to top it all off, was the tradition of the little boy and daddy placing the star on the top. :)
