Putting up the Christmas tree can be the most tedious part of Christmas. I always find it so frustrating trying to get the lights on just right. Getting the VIPs involved can help your mood but hinder your progress. But they definitely enjoy it and at the age they are at, this really helped them get into the excitement of "Cris-mas Time!!"
After last years repetitive attacks by the boys, the tree is definitely looking worse for wear. There are quite a few broken branches and pine needle less storks, so I think 2012 will see a new tree.
Here is the finished tree. I just have to tidy it up a bit!
