Our decorating has begun. We have about 99% of the outside lights up.
We still need to make a few finishing touches, but things are looking good.
Our tree is up. Matthew was quite excited to put up the ornaments this year.
And while "gentle" isn't a word usually used to describe Matthew, he made sure to be VERY careful putting the ornaments on. So much so that I had to follow his every move and push the ornaments on each branch so that they didn't fall off.
While he pondered the exact places to put up his favorites...Noah came sniffing around.
He here is giving me the "Hey mom, I was so NOT going to touch anything" look.
Noah was quite nosy.
And he directed Matthew as to the best places to put the ornaments - you know, within arm's reach.
So when Matthew turned his back, I moved all the ornaments up a branch or two.
We have a few new ones this year.
And while there are a million pins on Pinterest on how to take a good picture of your tree, I obviously did not get the memo. But, good enough for now.
More to come!
