This is our tree. Note the strategic placements of the ornaments--exactly one inch out of the reach of our three littlest helpers. All the kids helped to decorate the tree this year. I put hooks on the ornaments and handed them to the girls. They gave them to Everett, who put them as high as he could reach (grouped in categories). I moved a bunch of them up, or we would have had a single band of ornaments around the tree at about 4' from the floor. I took this picture on Christmas eve, and by this time it was looking fairly mangled. We all enjoyed it though, without me having to say "No" all the time!
