It has been our tradition since Sarah Graves was a baby to go to Home Depot and pick out a live Christmas tree. Each year they do different things to make it fun. One of their favorites is signing your name to a slice of the cut tree and nailing it to a board showing all the families who bought their tree there that year.
Decorating the tree is both fun and challenging! They desperately want to put the ornaments on themselves and I want them to have fun doing it, but also want to keep some of the sentimental ornaments from breaking.
Once it was all done, we are happy with the tree and you can't help but feel like Christmas when you see it!
Sarah Graves was most impressed with the remote controlled North Pole Express we bought to go around the bottom of the tree!
