We hope all of our American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Auntie and I went home to mom and dads for a couple of days and ate entirely too much! When we returned, it was time to start decorating for Christmas. The boys were excited to help.
Flynn making sure Auntie gets all the pieces for the black tree out of the box. Normally, we would have put this one up at Halloween, but we were not in the mood this year!
Flynn checking out the boxes containing the ornaments...don't worry Flynn, you have quite a few.
Rusty doesn't remember decorating being this tiring last year. You are just getting older buddy...don't worry, it happens to us all :)
Flynn - I don't see any of my ornaments in this lid...are you sure I have some?
Woah, there's a tree in the house!
Oliver checking out some of the other decorations that need to go out...
Flynn helping with another tree...we put up four.
Oliver - this box is still full...
Oliver - My work is done, I'm going to nap now...
Rusty isn't sure of this big mess.
The boys are doing surprisingly well around the trees so far. We have reminded them, mainly Oliver, a few times to keep your mouth closed. Rusty has stretched up in the tree a couple of times, but did not try to climb. We have quite a few ornaments with bells on them, so we can hear the trees shaking :) Also, we put plenty of soft things along the bottom, so they can play with them if they want. Don't worry that you didn't see Harrison, he was upstairs sleeping the whole day!
When do you decorate? Do you prefer a live tree or an artificial one?
