Jake and Ella Kate both remembered all the ornaments from last year and couldn't wait to get them out!
I let them hang all the balls by themselves.....they did a great job on the bottom half! Ella Kate wanted to hang every single ball on the same branch. I tried and tried to get her to put them elsewhere, but she insisted! I waited until they were distracted by a Christmas movie before I spread them out.
Other than the balls and bows, we only have sentimental ornaments. It's so much fun to get them out and remember who and when. The kids already have their own boxes since they get at least 2 new ones each year - one from my parents and one from us. I also have a box full of my ornaments growing up - some of them are pretty old!
