My husband puts the lights on our tree each year. I decorate. But, now we have 2 other little elves to help! It is magical to listen to our favorite carols while unwrapping precious ornaments from years past. "Ooh,remember this one?" "We made these last year.."
Before children, I had to have a diffeent theme and color on my fancy decorated trees. But, when I had my girls, I wanted something more. (probably from exhaustion the first few years!) We placed only the sentimental ornaments. The ones we got in Old Salem. Our First Christmas together and the yearly ornaments my mom has been getting me since I was very young.
Now we have many more homespun treasures to adorn the tree. And adding more memories each season. :)
