Today being the Saturday following Thanksgiving makes it "Put up the Christmas Tree Day". I am feeling ill, and didn't really feel like doing it. But I figured the kids would really like to do it, so up the tree went. It is the first year we are using this tree as we bought it after Christmas last year. It is a "pre-lit" tree. I assembled the tree and "fluffed" the branches, added the star and tinsel and the kids did the decorating. This is also the first year that I let the kids decorate the tree all by themselves. I did move a few ornaments as they had 2 or 3 hanging on the same branch in some places! The kids kept being "monkeys" to put the breakable ornaments "up high". The silly thing was, they were all doing it! I'm not sure who they thought they were hanging them out of reach of!
