It's so much better than the days when I tackled this alone - like Thing 1's First Christmas. Bert did help me pick out the tree and get it in the stand, but the rest was up to me. When it was done I wanted to snap a photo, of course. I gathered the family, set the timer, and got a great shot of my hip:
We set the timer again and this time it worked much better.
And just as we sat back to enjoy the glow of the tree, this happened:
Hmmmm, seems we didn't have it quite straight - don't worry, we fixed it up, but it never looked quite as good as it did right at first.
Now we have an artificial tree and it does a good job of staying in place. So, with the help of my kidlets - this is what we put together last night.
Merry Christmas and Happy Decorating!
