Trimming the Tree: Part One

amanda and the boyz

Amanda, our niece, wanted to help us pick out the tree and decorate. We were all for it and had a great time. She and I attempted to get some good pictures at the tree nursery but they were in vain. This is the best we did because the boys were all about running as fast as they could through the trees. She voted with Jared on which tree we should get AND what we should get on our pizza but I've decided I STILL love her. And I must admit that in the end I love the size of our tree.

A not so great picture of the final product. I promise it is prettier in person.

As I mentioned this is part one. The next post will show you the real chaos that was involved in trimming a tree with two year old twin boys! :)

How neat you had your niece involved:) I love the picture of her with the lights.

Your brave doing a real tree. I put my foot down and we do the fake kind:( much to my husbands dismay!
