We usually decorate our Christmas tree the week of Thanksgiving but we decided to do it a week earlier this year since we would be away during Thanksgiving break. I quickly grabbed some red ribbon and wrapped it rather fast around the tree so the kids could put on the ornaments. We love our mix mash of ornaments that we have collected over the years. Some of the ornaments are Mike's from when he was a kid and some are ones we have collected from the different countries we have either visited or lived. Then there are the ornaments the kids have made in school and those that were given to us by different relatives. Everyone definitely has their favorites. I always love this tradition of the kids placing the ornaments on the tree. This year it was Peter's turn to put the star on the tree. Lucky boy!
