The Russell family tradition I would like to share only started about 8 years ago. I invited the grandkids to come to grandma's house and help decorate the Christmas tree. Each year a different grandchild gets to put the angel on top of the tree...the highlight of decorating Grandma and Papa's tree is getting to use the ladder. We have a 9.5 ft tree and to reach the top we have to use the ladder! So, it is always and exciting time with all 7 grandkids here putting on various ornaments.
