This year we were lucky enough to have two extra helpers the day after Thanksgiving to decorate. Meghan moved down a few months ago and Grandma Pat (Jeremy's mom) was here visiting us and our new baby, Micah. So far the kids have left the tree alone. (Knock on wood!!) I was afraid Lauren would want to play with all of the ornaments. But she looks but doesn't touch. Leah thinks it is very beautiful. Lauren didn't quite get the whole decorating thing. Every ornament that I handed to her to put on the tree she would say "mine!". She was so excited we let her touch them and then she had to put them on the tree? No way! LOL! It was a fun day!
