The Tree is up!

For some time, Igor has been eagerly anticipating the Christmas tree going up!

This week we put up the tree and decorated it. This is the first year that Igor "gets" Christmas. He was so excited to decorate the tree we asked him to choose which lights would go on the tree- multi-colored or white lights. Igor decided both..... Multi colored lights combined with white lights seemed a little odd to me so I asked which lights he liked best. Igor picked the multi-colored lights. Rob and Igor headed upstairs to collect the Christmas decorations and lights. Can you guess who found the neatly wrapped lights and brought them downstairs?

Clearly a rookie mistake by mom and dad.

Next year, we'll carry the lights, not the kid(s). It took Rob a LONG time to untangle the lights. Finally we were able to decorate the tree! Igor requested the ladder so he could help with every aspect of decorating. Igor wanted to put up the star but he's not tall enough, even with the ladder, so Rob placed the star on top of the tree. It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

Like last year, as soon as Igor comes downstairs for breakfast the lights on the tree must be turned on. Igor LOVES the Christmas tree.

Our son loves Christmas, too. Igor is such a cutie! Christmas is so much more fun with little ones (and I loved it to begin with).

Merry Christmas!

I'm like Igor, I love to have the Christmas tree lights on! It sounds like you guys had fun decorating. When I was growing up it wasn't Christmas unless my dad spent 2 hours untangling lights. :)

Our tree went up this week too! Our home just wouldn't feel Christmasy without it. Too funny about the lights. (Although, Rob probably didn't think so.) Merry Christmas!
