Trimming the tree...

over & over & OVER again!

*side note* ...this is all new to me. It's the first time I've ever had this sort of trouble. Didn't know there was such a thing as only decorating the top half of the tree. I'll have to remember for next year... though it really really bugs me and I keep putting the ornaments back.

This is how it all goes down first thing in the morning at my house in the month of December:

Finding my something pretty and sparkly... to pieces. The shame!

At least Aubri is trying to put them to good use and is collecting ornaments (which she refers to as apples) for grandmother. She is little red riding hood.

This cute boy is just being plain naughty! He first stole my colander from the kitchen, collects the ornaments, and proceeds to throw them one by one down the stairs. Good thing I got rid of my glass ornaments and bought the shatter proof ones instead.

Lets look at the evidence again...

  4. Oh I feel your pain. I think next year will be worse when Henry can help.

    I looove the picture of Timmy with the chair. I don't know him but I feel that picture captures his personality.

  5. OK I am SO glad my kids aren't the only ones fascinated by things they shouldn't touch, case and point the Christmas tree.
    Your kids are adorable though, even if they get into mischief :)
