Tree Time!

So getting out our tree(s) is always an ordeal but, this year we got it done pretty fast. Like everything was up in four days. Not bad, considering in between the decor getting up, we went to a UNLV basketball game one night and had family over for Thanksgiving( which went great and relaxing, mostly) and. then on Black Friday we mostly decorated ( except for the gym  and target) and we got a lot accomplished! 
I must Thank all who helped. Codi, our neighbor and young friend, you watched the girls a bit while watching football. You also were the perfect person in the attic helping us get things down! I also went up in the attic and now, I'm not so scared of it anymore. Maybe it was Home Alone that did it to me, or the fear off falling???
Anywho( nice tangent, i know, right?) Thanks to Elders, Vaitia , and Elder H and one other elder Allen maybe? i forgot your names so sorry! Anywho, they were excellent service men. Since it's hard for them to actually get service hours in our area( everyone hires things out, pretty much) They came in really handy and got there hours in that week. 

So, that's my Thanks. Here's tree pictures. It turned out okay, so far. i still feel like it's missing some aqua? I think it would brighten it up! What do you all think?

Brielle loves to take off the little RUBIES and make a collection( so she calls it)

I left the bottom part kinda bare for now b/c we have four little hands that just take things off a lot but, about 95% of my ornaments are KID SAFE.  i used a lot of acrylic, plastic, resin, and foam ornaments! And so far, what's on the tree is stuff i already had from years past. I love this feather ornament! It's Just Silly and whimsical and soft! More on my girls later!
