We put our tree together the day after Thanksgiving. We really miss having a real “live” tree, but it just does not seem practical with a curious toddler. Hopefully next year when the girls are older we’ll get a real tree.
One benefit of using a small fake tree is the ability to put it up high. Lily can barely reach the ornaments that hang from the lower branches. We still let her explore a bit while we decorated.
The girls have been very excited for Christmas to finally get here. It is crazy to think it is only a few days away!
