I have gotten better over the years about the tree not being perfect. In fact the kids do make it perfect. Well, ok, I only moved a few... yet, they still noticed. :)
There were many happy faces pulling out our favorites! And the stories that go along with special ornaments, like the bendy Santa I refused to let Tony put on the tree our first year of marriage. That didn't stop him of course. Every day he would sneak it back on until I found it.
Now, 20 years later, it gets a place of honor beneath the angel.
Some of us were not very cooperative about having our picture taken.
It has been REAL hard keeping the kid's hands off the tree. In fact Tiger broke one after trying to bite it! Don't worry, he is ok!! The little stinker.
