Tree Trimming

We finally got the Christmas tree decorated last week. The boys take turns putting the star at the top of the tree every year. This year was Nick's turn but he decided Mia should do the honors.

For the second year in a row, we also put up another tree - affectionately called the Sports Tree. The tradition of the Sports Tree was started by the Polack's family when he was growing up. Ornaments consist of Big 10 University ornaments (we have them all minus the Minnesota one I broke last year) and sports related ornaments. Not surprisingly, this tree seems to have a red and white feel to it. Nicklas loves the Sports Tree and did most of the decorating himself.

We still haven't gotten the lights up outside and with the colder temps, it's debatable on whether this will happen this year. With everything else going on right now - you know, finishing up at current job, starting new job, getting house on the market, prepping for vacation ON TOP OF REGULAR HOLIDAY MADNESS - I'm pleased enough that we were able to decorate the inside of the house.
