Last week we decorated the Christmas tree. The Milk Monkey thoroughly enjoyed the whole process along with his brother and sister. He wasn’t quite sure what we were doing walking around checking out trees but he was excited. He seemed aware that we were doing something special.
When he saw the tree tied to the top of the truck, he pointed and shouted “ook ook” (look look), and when Daddy brought it in the house he grinned big and mischievous. Having a tree in the house was the ultimate fun for him!
This year the Little Professor took over my job of holding the tree steady while Daddy tightened the base and secured it in place. He was very proud of himself.
I was very proud of him too!
The Princess also took on a new job. She stood behind the tree and passed the lights back around to Daddy. It was fun at first but she was glad when it was finished.
The kids did the majority of the decorating. We let them place all the ornaments where ever they thought looked best.
I think they did a fabulous job!
After the tree was finished we celebrated with Hot Cocoa while we watched the Polar Express. The Milk Monkey was very impressed with the movie.
He’s getting so big!
It’s a joy to watching experience everything!
We’ve kept the tree lit along with a roaring fire all week and it’s so beautiful.
I’m enjoying Christmas so much this year!
