The day after Thanksgiving, when Zach was here to help, Jason and Zach put up the Christmas lights on the outside of our house.
That day, we also put up our Christmas tree, and then decorated several days later, with Sierra actually big enough to help this year.
We told her to put the ornaments as high as she could reach because Kaia likes to pull them off the tree. When she couldn't reach, she was very good at directing Jason or me where a particular ornament should be placed.
Sierra had a choice of a star or Santa as the tree topper. She picked the star, and I had the honor of perching it on the highest branch.
Don't you just love all the ornaments on the upper 2/3 of the tree? Ha!
And there's our tree in the dining room window, adding a little extra to the glow on the outside of the house.
