So we have a 15 month old boy this year. Which means, no ornaments below his reach. Every other time I've just forgone ornaments on the bottom of the tree, but it seemed so bare! So I picked up two boxes of those shatterproof ornaments and put them on tonight, I think they add a nice red touch to the green tree. And then tomorrow we'll add the rest of the ornaments. Now when there still isn't anything really in reach, at least it won't look as obvious. LOL.
