It is officially Christmas season at our house. We decorated our tree and brought out all of the ornaments least likely to be eaten and/or shattered by Henry.
Our baby cage has been brought into service again as well. This time, instead of keeping a baby in, it is keeping Henry out. He would climb inside the tree and knock it over without a barrier.
Henry loves our tree. He has been denuding it of any ornaments he can reach, though, and throwing toys and books into the baby cage with the tree. Henry points to it and grunts, but hasn't managed to say "tree" yet. Nick's first real word was "tree," back in 2009.
I love the multicolored lights. I had the same kind on my Christmas tree as a child, and I love the patterns they make when you move your head around. My camera, though quite slow at snapping pictures with moving children around, took some neat shots of the lights.
Tonight, to start off our holiday season, we're snuggling up and watching The Polar Express. Nick is mesmerized.
