Our tree went up last weekend, and Addison & Mackenzie absolutely love it. We did it all in one evening after they went to bed, so it was waiting for them when they got up the next morning. I turned on the lights, and they just pointed and grinned.
The girls have been really good about not touching the ornaments much...so far. They get curious of course, but I try to emphasize touching with a single pointed finger, so maybe they won't knock the ornaments off. This is our first experience with the tree on hardwood floors, and yes, I broke two ornaments while I was decorating.
(Addison is in the green cardigan and Mackenzie in the green shirt/pink pants in all of these. It was 'green' day at school!)
Both girls, but especially Addison, spend a lot of time staring up at the tree...it's almost like she's in awe of the size of it. I tried to snap some pictures yesterday afternoon to remind me how amazed they are over this first tree (remember, we had one last year, but it was gone before Christmas because we moved). They (again, especially Addison) have to wave to the tree whenever we are leaving the house or even when going to bed at night. I just love watching them enjoy it this much.
Hope you are enjoying the season as much as Mackenzie & Addison are!
