O Christmas Tree

We decorated the Christmas tree last night. It was a lot of fun and Todd and I agreed this could be our best Christmas ever for two reasons. 1. It might be the last year that all 3 believe. 2. Aiden is old enough to really get into it this year. He has had so much fun with it all so far. Last night he kept putting on the Santa hat, puffing out his belly, patting it and saying "ho ho ho" in a deep voice. It was so funny. But everytime I tried to get video of it, he wouldn't do it, the little stinker. Here he's putting on a Blue's Clues ornament. Look at the concentration.....

We had fun decorating, listening to Christmas music and singing along. After the boys went to bed, Todd and I watched a movie with just the tree lights on. I just love that! I have a little video I'm trying to get of the boys singing to put on here. Not getting the cooperation I need once the camera comes out. Keeping my fingers crossed though.

So cute, Kelly. Can't wait to see you all over New Year's.

I love sitting with only the tree lights on and looking at all the ornaments and remembering where they came from or who made it or what memory goes with the ornament....better than TV!

Me too! Love that-makes you never want to take the tree down...but at the same time, you know it wouldn't be near as special if it were there year round. We've had the tree up w/ lights and topper for 4 days now...no ornaments yet. Hmmm...if I could get away with it I would stop there!

I have some very happy memories (and some of me yelling) of the boys decorating the tree when they were small. They used to LOVE to hang the ornaments...mostly all on one branch near the bottom. We'd always play Christmas music too....and there were a few years we'd do it all over again the next day b/c the tree fell over....
ah good times.
