The week of Thanksgiving, we love to decorate our tree. This year, we decorated it the Sunday before Christmas. It was really fun for Louie and I because we were able to sit down and watch the kids decorate the whole tree themselves. A couple of years ago, I decided that I had to "let go" of controlling how the tree was decorated. It was very liberating and became much more fun for the kids! Now, they decorate the whole thing, and love the outcome all the more because of it. We always have such a special night as a family, getting ready for our favorite season!
