This year we cut down our own tree for Christmas. This cute little Christmas tree farm is just 2 minutes around the corner from us (sadly the land has been sold for development so this was its last year). We got a cute little one, 4 feet tall. A few weeks before we had the chance to get our family tree, Carter was anxious to decorate one. We pulled out our small fake tree and let Carter go to work (well, Mommy helped with the lights). He was very proud of the work he did. One day he came to me and told me that his tree needed a star. He was right! So...he helped me trace a star on yellow construction paper and he taped it on the highest branch. Way to go, Carter!
