Christmas Tree

On Friday we decorated our Christmas tree. It was so much fun. I went and bought a pre-lit tree since I couldn't face the idea of actually having to string lights. Eli was so excited to see the tree and had a great time decorating it. I was laying there looking at the tree and asked him to come snuggle with me. He climbed under the tree and said that he was going to snuggle under the tree.

So for the past 2 night Eli has said "Promise that you won't put the Christmas tree away." Like I'm just waiting for him to go to sleep so I can put the tree away. He has also been saying, "promise me that you'll get me this many presents." As he holds up his hands with his thumbs in (meaning 8 presents). I say, "no I won't promise that. You have to be a good boy to get presents." And he always replies, "I am."

As soon as Eli woke up this morning he rearranged his ornaments. His are pretty much in a little cluster. It's pretty funny how happy a Christmas tree can make him.

Here is Eli with his ornament cluster. I just think he's so cute.

Look at you guys being all festive! I don't think we're going to do a tree this year. Eli is funny! Maybe the ornaments need to be all together so they don't get lonely??

I love the ornament cluster. How funny Eli thinks you're going to put away Christmas for good. You're such a Grinch! :)
Oh and I thought I made you watch White Christmas with me in high school. I'm pretty sure we made a trade... White Christmas for The Stand. What's wrong with us?

I want to see a picture of Eli holding his stocking! And I love seeing him laying on the new tree skirt! :) BTW, I have a candy advent calendar I forgot to give you when you were over last week.

Did I give Eli a train ornament last year too?
