I didn’t have time to post these before we left for NYC last weekend, but the tree went up last week!  … And seriously, all of the sudden, the house feels so magical with all the Christmas spirit!

The boys were in awe looking at all the lights and ornaments, I immediately pulled out my camera and started snapping photos of them and their sweet gestures.  They each took one ornament off and played with it for a few minutes, but that was about it!   I’m really surprised they didn’t start grabbing everything and pull the tree down on top of them!  I mean, sometimes these boys can be confused for wild animals…  It’s been up for about 10 days now and everything is still in tact.  This mama (two thumbs pointing at myself) is amazed!

Tree pics from the past can be found here, here, and here.

Has your family put their tree up yet?!? Do you use a real or fake tree?  I always get a real tree.  I’m sure I have written this in the past, but the smell of a live fraser fir is probably one of the best smells of all time.  My whole house is consumed in the scent and I LOVE IT!!!  Sure, the needles are annoying, and the tree will never have the perfect shape… but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I hope the Christmas spirit has hit your homes too!  Happy December, everyone!  It’s going to be a crazy, fun, exciting month!
