On Saturday Matt and I decided to start our holiday decorating (after seeing Santa on Friday it seemed fitting). Ish was creative director this year. Here he is telling daddy exactly how to construct our tree.
He didn't let daddy forget he was in charge - he never took his eyes off the tree.
His hands seemed to be on the tree a lot too - even though we kept saying "no touching!"
Eventually Ish got bored and decided to lay down on the job.
He felt that the whole project was just taking way too long.
And then there was a light malfunction that delayed the project even more.
So Ish abandoned the tree project and decided to model his reindeer antlers for us.
When that got boring, he insisted on a snack and Toy Story dvd break.
So I finished off the decorating projects on my own. I started with decorating the tree.
I picked out all my favorite ornaments.
Then I put out all our cute little stuffed decorations (there's Ish in the background, eating an apple).
I put up our stockings.
And put "old time Santa" in his rightful spot in front of the fireplace.
Matt hung the lighted garland on the staircase.
And the final touch - the Santa Christmas countdown statue.
Now, on the the outside decorations!!!
