And the tree came tumbling down...

We put up our Christmas tree on Saturday.  I had been itching to start decorating it.  But we had to wait until after Thanksgiving.

We were even able to get a tree in the boys' room.  I know these trees won't win awards, but it was fun to see the boys enjoy getting to decorate them.  And I have spent the last 3 days firmly reminding the boys that the ornaments are supposed to stay ON the tree.

So here we are today...3 days later.  We were babysitting our nieces, Taylor and Madison, and all 4 kids were in the living room looking at the tree.  John is sitting in a spot where he can see the kids and I hear him say, "Oh no."  Next thing you know, we hear Caleb crying.  He had pulled the tree down on himself.  I start freaking out (it's what I do).  We get Caleb out from under the tree, and he is still screaming.  He wasn't hurt, but he just scared himself.  I'm comforting him while John is trying to get the tree standing again.  I don't have any pictures (too bad, because in hindsight, the picture of your kid under a fallen Christmas tree would be fun to have!).  I'm hoping that all 4 kids learned their lessons from this little incident.

You can be honest... you secretly wish he'll do it again so you can get a picture of it, don't you? =) That's funny. We are going through the same thing. Ben is fascinated with the angel which he calls an Uh-Oh. He will just stare up at her. It's so cute. I love Christmas time!
