The boys have been begging all week to get the Christmas tree out of the attic. We told them we would get it down on Saturday after Thanksgiving. Well, the day had arrived and they had not forgotten. We were woken up at 6am for requests for a tree. So, the tree came out. When we opened the box of ornaments, Oliver was in awe. It was as he had never experienced this before. This will be the first Christmas that everything is exciting and new to him.
He carefully placed every ornament.
They did a great job.
After decorating, we all moved on to doing separate things around the house. But, Oliver spent at least an hour beside the tree looking at each and every ornament. This evening we went to my parent's house to celebrate my Dad's birthday. Oliver kept asking over and over again to go home. Finally we found out why. He wanted to see the Christmas tree. He had even taken the tree remote in his pocket so he could turn the lights on as soon as we drove up. I can't wait to watch him the rest of this Christmas season.
