I have been saying this for the past few weeks to Laynee and Connor any time they start acting up...it seems to be working, cause Laynee says "I be good"....We put up the treein the living room, a tree in the kitchen, Laynee's room and Connor's room. I have a few pictures of what are tree looks like. For the past two years I have used a tub to hold the tree. I got the idea from BHG and painted it black the first year and red this year. I have really gotten good use out of it, I painted it red for Connor's summer b'day and decided to leave it for christmas. I also posted a few of my favorite ornaments-I got these for our first christmas and love them!
