Decorating the tree

I waited 2 years for all 5 of us to put the tree up. I was teary through the whole thing.
She wasn't sure what was going on, but jumped right in

This tree stuff is hard work, stopping to eat her cheese burger

Awww....how perfect....it was very emotional for us...we go cut the tree every year and to have Mikayla there made me WANT to teat up, I think my eyes TIRED to tear up but it was too darn cold for tears out the fields. LOL. The tears came later when she was running around with an ornament. Last Christmas SUCKED didn't it!?
