Tree Decorating

We brought our tree home the Sunday after Thanksgiving & it promptly began to rain. For days. So much that we weren't able to bring it inside until Friday evening.

 The tree went up perfectly straight the 1st time which is UNHEARD of in our home!!
 Jon & I have a pretty good system working together getting the lights strung to the tree.....
 Our only hiccup every. single. year is that the girls think they are able to string the top half of the tree & get a bit antsy waiting for the stringing to get down to their level! 
 Christmas music plays in the background while we happily {& sometimes unhappily} string away......depending on the time we start decorating we typically wait until the next day/night to add the ornaments but always end this part of our night with a Christmas movie! I AM A SUCKER FOR TRADITIONS!
