boys and trees

Friday, December 7, 2012

We don't mess around at our house.  We put our Christmas trees (plural) up more than a week ago.  They are artificial, so we don't have to worry about them drying out and becoming dangerous.  And, quite frankly, Christmas trees are high on my list of favorite things.

Luckily for me, my boys also like their trees.  And their lights.

It's very serious business to put them on the tree, you know.  They must be evenly distributed.


That doesn't mean you shouldn't have fun while you work!


 That also doesn't mean that you can't take a break and stick a light or two *almost* in your eye.


And when you're done, you should stand back and admire your handiwork.  And feel the spirit of the season!


I love my guys.  I love our trees.  And I love Christmas.

Hope you're feeling it today, too.

Talk soon,
Heather

  1. Nice. Glad that the bickering over untangling lights is not a part of your family tradition. Where do you stand on tinsel? And, now we need photos with ornaments! Your public wants more!!! lol

  2. I'm so impressed that Jack helped with the lights. Ike's idea of helping is following me and tapping my leg while saying, "momma, momma." I ended up doing most of the tree while he was napping!
