My holly jolly little Christmas tree

Remember when...
I said we were going to put our tree up?

Yahh... about that.

This was as far as we got. Lol.

Last Saturday, was cleaning day.
We're talking C-L-E-A-N ing day!
Daddy even shampooed  all the carpet in our entire house
I hate strongly dislike carpet,
but that's another story.
Along with that, I had a million & five other items on my to do list.
The million & five items got checked off.
Then this tired mommy got the decorations out from storage,
brought the boxes inside.
AND then
 proceeded to wrap my crazy cute 3 year old in Christmas lights instead!
Fun times were had.

Uh. OH.
Now how to explain to him this is not something we usually do,
& was only for the love of photography?

It was a merry little time though!

I love seeing life through my little man's eyes.
It is such a beautiful place.
I am one lucky mommy.

Linking up with Sweet Shot &  Live, Love, & Travel !

This is lovely... no better way to decorate than this.

Adorable! I want to do this next year. This year I was too worried about her ripping the lights down after they were up to play with them. I think an almost 3 year old will get it more than an almost 2 year old.

What a great idea for photos!!! I may just steal that from you. I wanted so badly to get a Christmas card out with Em on it, but I just can't seem to get the right picture! These would look nice on a card! He looks like he had a blast too! ;0)

You definitely are a lucky mama! And show us pictures when your tree is up :)
Although, I wouldn't mind having a cute little one wrapped up in Christmas lights at my house!

Jill Wellington said...

Love it! I tried that with my kids, but couldn't get the lighting right on their faces. You have inspired me to try again.
