Thanksgiving weekend is a time for us to trim the tree. It works out well as right after Thanksgiving we always get so busy with Christmas activities.
The kids are at an age now where they are really helpful! I remember the days when we would decorate the tree together and then I would go around and redecorate after they were in bed. Now, they know the plan and need little direction.
Ava Mae had the honor this year of placing the first ornament on the Christmas Tree. The ornament is normally a special one from one of our trips during the year. This year it was a silver Mickey head in honor of our trip to Disney World.
