We successfully got the tree up. The lights are on (ok it came that way) and the skirt is under it. This weekend we'll add the ornaments. The boys are both pretty fascinated with it at this stage of decoration, so I was contemplating no ornaments. I just think the middle to top decorations with a bare bottom (ie toddler height) looks dumb. But I'm not looking forward to the endless instruction to not touch the ornaments!!
