O Christmas Tree, Part 2

During our sick weekend we managed to get our Christmas tree decorated. We were lacking energy and less enthusiastic than I had hoped but we had a good time anyway. In the past I have been a bit of a Christmas tree nazi. I am quite particular about which decorations should be used and where they should go. After I confused Tyson by telling him we had to come up a with a plan before starting (is that just me), I decided I needed to practice giving up control of the tree. I have always been afraid that when we had kids I would not let them help decorate or that we would have to get a separate tree just for me...ha:) So, after I had put on a few decorations I stepped back and just "prepared" ornaments for Tyson to put on. I decided I will have no problem letting our kids decorate later in life...I can't wait to see what they come up with. We had a fun time, sang some Christmas songs and Kai even helped put ornaments on. He loves the tree and is often headed off to try to play with those tempting for a little one. He is learning that is it only for looking but he still tries at least once an hour:) Here is a picture of our tree.
