Decorating The Tree

Sunday night we decorated our tree that we have in the family room.
This tree is decorated with ornaments that are mine from my childhood, and ones that we have collected since we have been married.
We also have added ornaments that the kids received when they had their first Christmas and ones that they have received or made over the years.
In addition to all of those, each year, the kids get to pick out a new ornament.

In last few years, Zach has begun to help Jeff put the tree up.
It is so fun to watch them work together on this project. =)

Lily got to add the angel to the tree this year!
(with daddy's help of course)

The kids like to add their new ornaments to the tree first.
Zach picked out a shiny red present as his ornament.

Lily had been eyeing this cute penguin for weeks.
I am SO glad they had one left when we went to get ornaments!!

Riley picked out an ornament that had a cute scene from the movie Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

It is so fun to watch them get excited over their ornaments.
They have baby ones, ones with their names on them, handmade ones, cars, care bears, footballs, and anything else you can imagine.
It makes our tree unique to us as a family.
And I love that.
