the good, the bad, and the ugly

the good……..it started out good.

on Friday we set out to find the perfect tree

cooper even brought the right tool

found it, cut it….all before the sun went down….perfect timing!

last year a fellow blogger passed on this great idea of sorting out the ornaments and giving each child their own to put up….my kids got right to work! DSCN2099 DSCN2100  DSCN2107 DSCN2108 DSCN2113

the bad……a little tantrum from Cooper…very common these days……we are finding 3 is a TERRIBLE age.

and the ugly…..well, i wasn’t able to get a picture of this because i had my hands full of Christmas tree…literally.  the tree came crashing down…ornaments and all….it was quite a scene.  2 kiddos crying because a tree falling and ornaments breaking was a bit too scary for them.  Hubby has since tied the tree to the wall…but the darn thing is still crooked…hoping this is the only drama we have this holiday season!

I love the idea of a tray for each child. I love that you cut your own tree.

Oh my gosh, you poor thing! That had to be so scary and frustrating when it fell! It's a beautiful tree!
