Deck the Halls

The day after Thanksgiving we put up our Christmas tree – and it was the most fun morning. Both boys were really into the tree, the ornaments, the decorations, the stockings the everything!

We get each boy an ornament for their stockings every year – usually something that they have done or liked or a yearly milestone. Will was really interested in knowing which ornaments are “his.” He also likes to point to his ornaments and say “mine.” Thomas quickly picked up on this fun game and he points to the biggest, brightest, most glittery ornaments and says, “dat mine, dat mine, and dat mine!”

Bill has some obsessive compulsive tendencies when it comes to decorating the Christmas tree {really when it comes to most things!} and Will was causing him to twitch. Will kept asking me why I didn’t like to decorate the tree and I told him that it was due to some childhood trauma that included my mom and sister moving every ornament I put up because it “didn’t look good.” Later, I heard this conversation take place:

Bill: Will, don’t put all the ornaments on one branch.

Will: But Daddy, you told me there is no wrong way to decorate a Christmas tree!

    Your repressed memories are killing me!

      It’s your children’s jobs to make you feel guilty :) Is it working?!?! (And by the way, I helped Dad with the lights this year – and you said they needed to be shifted after we finished! I give up.)

    That’s what you get for trying to be so helpful. And you have to watch what you say to Will. He’s too smart!
