Tonight we put up our Gratitude Tree.
Actually Big Daddy put it up and we were all his support crew.
If you are wondering what a Gratitude Tree is, it looks a lot like a Christmas Tree without the Christmas ornaments.
We usually don't rush over Thanksgiving with Christmas decorations, but this year Thanksgiving is so late and I couldn't wait to get our tree up.
Big Daddy does the heavy lifting and we just cheer him on.
The part I don't like about the tree is fluffing the branches and getting them back in shape after being in a box for a year.
This year we trained the kidlets to be the branch fluffers. I knew it was a good idea to have a bunch of kids. At times they come in so handy!
Good thing Big Daddy had helpers getting the tree in the right position.
One of the reasons we put the tree up early is to get Ham and LaLa used to the tree before it gets decorated.
Not that Ham would want to touch everything on the tree.
Big J came up with the idea to add a few Thanksgiving decorations and voila!
A Gratitude Tree.
I think this might be a new tradition!
