Christmas Tree Time!

This past weekend we went ahead and got our tree. The boys were very excited and had been asking when we were going to get it since the Christmas decorations started appearing in stores. The trees seemed to be a little more scraggly this year then last, but we found one that seemed to work. I love the smell of fresh pine trees!

Their faces crack me up! Parker has a mask on his head for those who were wondering.
Hanging one of his ornaments.

Finding the perfect spot.

Who put that under the tree?

Blake was in a funny mood that night...he only wanted to make silly faces.

Picking their favorites.

I love Parker's lips...this is the face he makes when he is really concentrating.

The finished tree! The boys did a great job! Jacob seemed to be the only one that wanted to hang multiple ornaments in one spot. When he wasn't looking, I would rearrange them slightly, but by the end of the night, he was putting them in other spots on the tree. They loved looking at all their ornaments and remembering them. After we were done, Blake said "I love Christmas time". They went to bed with smiles on their faces and happy memories. It was a great day!

  1. Haha...I love how kids decorate trees. When ours was done, all the ornaments were at the very bottom, and on about 3 branches. I had to sneak and rearrange too. I love Christmas. :)
