Trimming the Tree

On Sunday we decided to put up the family tree.

It's always an occasion filled with Christmas music, nostalgia & a little fighting over who gets to put what ornament on the tree or who gets to put on the star.

Let's be real now. We absolutely love it, but kids will be kids :)

Tree assembly.

We're so lucky to have so many helpers!

Pre ornaments.

Just a funky picture, I thought was cool.

Matthew loves bubble lights and flicker lights.

A cute guy I just had to take a picture of. This picture is linked up at:

Decking the tree.

I can't believe how tall our kids have gotten. Now they can read most parts of the tree themselves, with the exception of Lexi.

We had to look at old pictures on the computer to decide who's turn it was to put on the tree topper.

Our finished tree.

The kids mostly decorated it themselves.

I got to put the lights on cause Matthew still wasn't feeling his best.

And we had to help the kids get the beads around the tree too:)

I always love how there are quite a few ornaments at the bottom of the tree. I'm pretty sure Lexi put these on the tree :)

The kids did a great job!

We love how this is in our family room and we get to look at it all Monthly long!

Love the color bokeh. All of my bokeh shots are with white lights. I need to unpack a the color lights just to play with photographing them.
