I have to admit that we put up our Christmas tree before November 28th (American Thanksgiving) because we just needed some decoration in our home, we still have nothing on the walls and minimal furniture.
Tracen was excited and very willing to help but then got distracted by this cardboard tube.
We don't have many ornaments, and after one incident with broken ornament glass, the breakable ornaments got moved from Tracen's reach. To help fill the space Tracen and I painted some pinecones with sparkly paint.
We have no tree topper, but we love our simple tree.
