Is yours up? When will you be putting it up?

    DD decorated the tree all by herself as a surprise for me. She is 9. She did a good job, its just a little uneven and top heavy. I admire her enthusiasm and determination to decorate the tree. I cannot re do the tree or it would crush her confidence. So I added some more lights and evened out the bulbs. I'm not entertaining this year so I asked myself if it really mattered if the tree wasn't perfect and the answer was no. So I decided to leave the tree just the way she fixed it with a few of my improvements. And everything worked out OK.

    Mine isn't up yet. We were going to do it this coming weekend, but we may do it next. Just depends on weather, cost and how brave we are with our son (10 months)! lol 
    Our daughter loves  helping decorate though! She will most definitely be helping. I'll probably give my son a plastic ornament or something so that he feels included as well.

    We'll hopefully be putting it up this weekend.  The kids will definitely help.  My daughter loves to sort the branches.
