Taking the Scenic Route

Saturday evening we pulled out the Christmas decorations.  I am glad we waited because I felt better than I did on Friday.  We put on some Christmas music and spent the evening putting together the tree I used to decorate as a kid.  (We had real trees we hunted for ourselves in Grandma & Grandpa’s pasture through my young childhood, but when we got Jr. High age, this was the tree Mom & Dad bought.).  I had to spend an inordinate amount of time with scissors cutting off all the extra strings from the ball ornaments.  lol. 

We got out his Little People Nativity Scene last night, but decided to wait until today to pull out the regular one.  It was enough excitement for Zane last night and I want him to be able to enjoy it instead of being overwhelmed by it all.

He remembered how to put it together

Dragging the box closer…just in case we forgot.


Ready to string the lights

Grabbed an ornament I hadn’t fixed yet


How old are you this Christmas?  “I’m 1…2…3  Three Years Old!”

The angel puts on the angel


Caught him by surprise when we turned on the lights.


Getting out the Nativity Scene.  He insisted it go exactly where it went last year,  under the tree.


And a look back, Zane and the branches of the tree…

(for those of you who saw this earlier, I changed the photo..the other one you couldn’t see how the tree was leaning, so it wasn’t a good size comparison)

    Awwwww – and you’re definately early decorators. We probably will be digging stuff out in a few weeks. We have a fake tree too, due to dh’s severe pine allergies over here.
