These pictures are not great......but it was evening and I didn't feel like getting my flash out.  The girls had a lot of fun decorating the Christmas tree.  For the 3rd year in a row we had a small tree that was just for the girls, but for the first time ever, we let the girls help hang ornaments on our grown up tree.  We still saved the precious ornaments for adult hands and hung them up high where the kiddos couldn't get them & break them.  But overall the kids did really well with decorating both trees.  I am truly amazed at how well Eleanor handled the Christmas tree!  I was very worried that it was going to be a battle with her to not play with the sparkly, colorful baubles hanging from a tree in our living room......but she did great!  It took about 2 days of cutting her off before she got her hands on the big tree and telling her, "No no, you go to your tree." before she completely left our Christmas tree alone.  It's great having a little tree that the girls can decorate however they like with non breakable ornaments......they put them on and took them off over and over again.  I'm looking forward to the day when they are old enough and responsible enough to have just one Christmas tree, but until that day comes our arrangement works really well for us!

Both big girls got a turn putting the star up on our Christmas tree.....
thank goodness we have a strong daddy!
