The Sunday after Thanksgiving we started to decorate for Christmas. Our "pre-lit" tree would only half light up this year and poor Kenny spent hours playing with fuses and bulbs and wires but finally we just mixed in some extra light strands to fill in the dark areas. SO frustrating! Once the tree was finally ready to decorate it seemed to take days. I think this has been the hardest year to complete this task since the boys have been born because they wanted to "help" which makes everything take 10 times longer ;-). On the other hand this year has been much easier to keep the ornaments on the tree as they seem to understand that concept. Now if only I could place wrapped gifts under the tree without them being opened instantly.
Oh well, maybe next year!
They were fascinated with these strands of beads.
The stockings were hung by the fireplace with care . . . .
Here is the boys' tree that they got to decorate:
My goofiest child by far!
We are enjoying making memories together!
