I love family traditions and one of my favorites is my grandkids coming every year to decorate my Christmas tree. There is always some chaos when all my grandkids get together but the tree decorating always seems to have an extra measure of chaos.....good chaos, fun chaos, but chaos nevertheless.
They love checking out the ornaments that they made when the were little and having a laugh at the ones with pictures that their parents made when they were little. My tree is not elegant, but it has a lot of tradition with ornaments going all the way back to my childhood.
Beck was very serious about finding just the right spot for each thing he (sort of) hung on the tree.
The older kids make sure that at least a few ornaments make it toward the top of the tree.
The real chaos comes into play when we try to get a picture of them all together in front of the tree. Beck was not exactly into being still for a picture.
Oops, there he goes.
Oh, well 6 out of 7 isn't too bad.
This one is from 4 years ago.....I can't imagine how grown up they will be 4 years from now.
