Having a Christmas tree with little kids around is a tricky business. I feel like we are close to being done with the Christmas tree being a hazard for small people, but Cooper is a wee bit of a wild one. I would say that we are currently working with 75% broken ornaments. I still hang them broken and all. If someone robs us this Christmas we will be totally safe. All we have to do is threaten them with one of the many jagged edges from our many broken Christmas ornaments.
Tonight, among other things, I caught Cooper doing the following:
1. Hanging hooks on the tree with no ornaments attached. The whole bottom half of the tree is just metal hooks
2. Falling off the edge of the couch into tree. My "Meet Me Under the Mooseltoe" ornament took a direct hit and lost his antlers in the fall.
3. Throwing small glass baubles at the top of the tree to try to get them to stay. Nope, didn't stay. Just came falling to floor and shattered.
4. Eating my cinnamon gingerbread shaped ornaments (he regretted that choice)
Tree is up.
Mantle is decorated.
Handless Baby Jesus and all the other handless people from the nativity are set up and we are ready to go!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!!
Happy Christmas xoxo
