Deck the Halls!

This weekend we put up our Christmas tree. Xavier and Ben had a good time watching the process and listening to the obligatory Dean Martin Christmas music playing in the background (I grew up with this tradition, and it just wouldn't seem right to decorate the tree without it!)

Ben was amazed that a tree can come out of a box. :) He watched intently as Nick adorned the tree with lights:

Xavier loves the little twinkly white lights. He would lay under or sit beside a Christmas tree for hours if we let him. He helped Daddy hold a string of lights (and played with them at the same time):

Xavier checking out the 'touchability' of the tree:

I tried my best to get Ben to take a picture - but he was on the photo strike picket line again. "No picture, Mommy!" Xavier is always game for a photo, so here are a few pictures of us(the last 2 taken through the tree :)

I love the pictures of you and Xavier through the tree. There is something special about the tree, almost like the season is officially here once the tree is up. Love it!

I'm jealous, I love Christmas trees! I wish we could get a tree this year but it's just not safe to leave it home alone:(.
The boys look so cute in the photo to the right, so young!
