Oh Christmas Tree!

Wow! Is Big Guy really taller than his tree? I guess I need to look for him a taller tree. Not because he is taller, but because he almost doesn't have room for all of his ornaments. Every year we make new ones to add to his tree and we always seem to buy one or two. Maybe I can move this tree out to the back patio and get him one that is a little taller.
Little Guy's tree has a sports theme. His room has a sports theme so his first ornaments were "Bulldog's 1st Christmas" and ornaments like that. One year we found all these cute snowmen with different sports themes and we bought them for his tree. Since then he has been making and finding sports ornaments for his tree. So cute!
When Little Guy was decorating his tree he got a flashlight and then got a piece of paper and punched some stars in it and taped it over the top. He put the flashlight in his Christmas tree and pointed it towards his ceiling. When he turned on his flashlight stars were on the ceiling. I thought it looked so cool and creative so I asked him about it. He said, "Mom, that is so the wise man can find Jesus at my nativity."
Amusing gave us a bag of pajamas that D had outgrown. I was pulling them out to put away and Little Guy found the pajama set you see him wearing in this picture. He exclaimed, "Wow! These are fancy pajamas." He has worn then every night since them. He just loves them. The first night he wore them he asked me to take his photo in front of the tree. He is definitely cute in his fancy pajamas. Thanks, Amusing!

Those trees are wonderful! Don't let the Ladies see them though - they'll want trees in their room and there just IS NOT ROOM!!!

I LOVE the "Fancy" pjs!!!!

Your kids have their own trees? That is SO COOL! Deanna, you totally rock as a mom!

And Little Guy is way smart to figure out that star and flashlight thing. Big Guys looks cute next to his smaller-than-him tree! :-)

Um, Deanna? I was just looking at these pics again -- they're such happy pics, i love them! -- and it looks like this time next year, Little Guy will have outgrown HIS tree too! As Studly says, feed 'em and they grow... Mine are both considerably taller than me now -- wonder if feeding them less would have helped?
