Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

After waiting a few days so Brittney would be home to decorate with us, we finally got the ornaments out and on the tree. We cranked up some Christmas music and got to work.

Each of the quads got their own new ornament to hang on the tree. They already have a stuffed animal that corresponds with the ornament. Connor has Pooh Bear, Dylan has Tigger, Brooklyn has Piglet and Hailey has Eyore.

They were so excited and dove right in. I had to quickly step in and pull out the ornaments not suitable for the kiddos to hang. In hindsight, next year I will pull out the ornaments before setting the box on the couch and letting them "have at it".

Hailey and Connor were the best ornament hangers. Which doesnt suprise me. They are more focused and spent quite a while hanging the ornaments. Where as Dylan and Brooklyn are more active and cant be bothered to spend more than a couple minutes putting some ornaments on a tree when there are other things to be done.

Hailey found one particular branch and decided to hang ALL her ornaments there.

Connor was very particular about where he put his ornaments.

Brittney showing her sibs the art of placing an ornament in the exact right spot. (Not just on the lower branches. Ha Ha.)

Dylan caught on to the idea, and after spending most of the night flying the airplane around the room, decided to put it at the top of the tree.
