I'm Sooo in the Mood for Christmas!

OK. I accidentally got all these pictures in the wrong order, but oh well. You all get the idea. On Monday, we rushed to get a tree (just before dark) from a local tree farm. As usual, I changed my mind about 20 times before we finally picked one. Even Josiah was getting impatient with me. He was so excited about decorating the tree. He'd put an ornament on, and as soon as he'd turn his back I would move it. He never caught on to what I was doing. We hung all the breakable ornaments at the top of the tree, so it was a little uneven, but I think it still looks OK. I decided to give up the themed trees for awhile (probably until the kids are out of the house) and just do a kid friendly trees. In the meantime, I'll just admire other people's themed trees.
Hailey is doing such a good job about not touching the ornaments or presents underneath. I usually only have to get after her a couple of times a day when she just can't seem to help herself from touching the tree.

We gave Hailey some non-breakable ornaments to help put on. She just loved helping!

As you can see, we barely got the tree cut down before it was dark(I love our Subaru Outback). It was the first time we've been tree hunting when it was nice out. We've been having fabulous weather around her, but now I'm ready for snow! Let snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Your tree looks beautiful!!! I'm so jealous we have been trying to put ours up since Sunday and we have still have only the lights on. I know your going to laugh when I say this because it seems so far from what your feeling right now but you will miss them trying to get all those ornaments someday!!! Mine just like to fight while putting up the tree. Keep them young!!!!

Your tree is so pretty! I think we are going to get our tree on the 14th...that is my mother-in-law's birthday and Dionne told me it was tradition for them to get the tree on her special day. Oh, I've been meaning to tell you that I love your new background on your blog! :}

Your tree looks awesome! Mine won't look half as good. I thought you were doing the Scottish theme again.

We get our on Saturday. I'm trying to come up with a game plan of how to NOT let the kids fight about the ornaments!

I'm so glad Hailey is doing well with it. Once Jacob sees those firetrucks he's going to go crazy!
