The artificial tree became the solution to my the-kids-want-their-own-decorations dilemma. The little tree is now the kids dedicated tree. They display Christmas ornaments they have picked. They can also show off their handmade Christmas-themed creations they've collected through the years.
Even though the artificial tree is fun and easier to set up, I am a sucker for gathering up the family to buy a fresh tree. It's become something the boys look forward to every year. Plus, I love the way it makes the house smell like Christmas.
This tree is known in our home as "mommy's tree". It holds pretty decorations that I've made. Along with lovely ones that I've snatched on the-day-after-Christmas-sales.
I have to admit putting up two trees can be a little time consuming. Even more so when I'm putting them away! But it's the perfect solutions for creative mommies and little ones alike.
