Setting up the tree

Here Ethan is putting up the tree. Last year the picture taking ended up in tears. Today after Ethan finished school we set up the tree. He was very excited to do this. I told him we would do it yesterday but we were very busy and had to wait till today. I then made him wait till after he finished school.  Then we had to eat lunch. Finally I took pity on him and we set up the tree. I put the lights up on the house on Friday and we had a fatality. Frosty didn't make it. He was an inflatable 8 ft. decoration and the seams have stretched out over the years. He would have been 6 this year. We are trying to find a replacement. I like to keep the outside decorations fairly simple. I can set them up in about 15-20 minutes and would like to keep it that way. I love those net lights yo just throw on the bushes. Did I mention I was the first one to have my lights up on my street. We have several hand made ornaments on our tree. These are my favorite ornaments. Each year they go up on the tree I think about the person that made them. I am going to post the names:
Dan Long
Jon Lockerman
(Thank you all:-)
I hope everyone has a great holiday season.

Have a very Merry Christmas
