Tonight we decorated our Christmas tree...or should I say, the boys decorated it. Tyler put six balls on one branch. He had a bit of a hard time moving from that spot. I pretty much left it the way they decorated it. I figure that if I "mess up" what they did then they won't take any pride in it and won't want to do it in the years to come. I know I'm over analyzing it but whatever. That's my excuse for the tree looking the way it does! ;-P Not much in the mood to fix things anyways because I'm feeling quite melancholy after seeing all the decorations from my grandmother. There is a lot that she made for Logan and one for Tyler. I was pretty sad thinking that Ryland will never have one from her. She used to crochet the ornaments and put pictures in the center of them. Then she would glue glitter to them. They were quite tacky but I appreciate them all the more since she's gone. I miss her very much.
I let the boys put up a small lit Christmas tree in their room. Tyler kept saying, "I love my Christmas tree!!". I think that they both think that they will wake up and it will be Christmas morning. Not looking forward to that! Logan keeps asking everyone if it's Christmas yet and then complains and says that it's taking FOREVER! Poor kid....guess this is a good lesson in patience.
Just wanted to add a few things that Tyler has been saying. It's a shocker when he comes out with this stuff since he's usually the shy, quiet one.
- We were watching a transformer video on youtube and he saw his fav "bumblebee" and said "That's what I'm talking about!".
- He and I were driving home and I put my Ipod on the Superman theme song which he loves. He looks up into the sky and yells "Superman, Save Us!!!".
- He says that daddy works at the hosipal.
- He likes that 80's song "I want candy" and when someone else sings it he follows with "No you don't" in the same tune. He also has added "I want chocolate".
