Brad was working crazy hours and a person can only sit with a bare Christmas tree in their living room for so long. Especially with a four year old who is begging to decorate it.
So me, Preston, and Iron Man decided one night while Brad was working to get started.
We sent Brad photos along the way so that he got to feel included. Although I'm sure he was relieved that he didn't have to help. While I'm the one who's crazy about which tree we get, Brad is the one who's crazy about how it's decorated. So we saved him from stressing out about where the lights were and where the ornaments should go. And how close the red ones should be to the silver ones and whether everything was just too close together.
Preston was finally old enough this year to really enjoy not only decorating it but seeing all of the ornaments that mean something. His special ornaments. Our special family ornaments. He wanted to know about all of them!
Preston thought it all looked great when we were done!
Somehow I didn't end up taking a picture of it when it was all said and done! But I can assure you it looked very Christmas-y!
