putting up the tree with a 2 year old

putting up the tree with a 2 year old has to be one of the best things ever

as you know, we put up the tree on October 30th this year. (vs Nov 1st) since it was the only time Freeland had off before Chapel arrived.

River went NUTS.

He LOVED it.

Im so thankful we let him stay up to help us instead of doing it while he was in bed. (poor Wylder was already down for the count by the time this happened)

He yelled "CHRISTMAS TREE" approximately 800 times followed by "LETS DO THIS" another 850 times that night. So hilarious.

It really was magical to him

Right when we pulled out the box it was as if he remembered it from the year before and knew what to do. He even hung some of his toys on the tree without us telling him to?! I dont know how he knew to do that since we didnt have any ornaments out! But it was adorable to watch.

He literally pulled up a chair to watch the whole thing go down.

(also to avoid helping!)

If we pulled the chair back he would just get out and push it right back up to the tree so it was touching the tree while he sat in it!

This tree has made it through 5 years so far. Each year a new strand of lights goes out. And each year Freeland has to search to figure out whats wrong and fix it. Its not frustrating for him at all! ;)

Truly magical to a little 2 year old boy. The pride he has when he gets to show anyone his "crystal tree" is adorable. Its almost worth leaving up year around!
