Christmas Trees & Morning Reads

So my objective last night had been to put up the Christmas tree after the Monster went to bed and then when he woke up this morning it would have basically just appeared...kind of like Santa's presents.  We did actually manage to get the tree down from the attic, put the base together and the bottom layer of branches on last night before succumbing to hanging on the couch with no monster running around.  This morning then the Monster found a new bag of "treasures" in the middle of the floor (the rest of the tree branches in a nasty, dirty bag from the attic.  Nice.

The pictures are a little blurry because he was bouncing up and down and singing "d, d, d, d" while pulling the branches out.  Despite the fact that he actually has quite a few words, the letters "b" and "d" are his two very favorite things to say right now.  

And since Da was already late leaving the house this morning, he let himself be talked into reading two books before he left.  Much to the Monster's delight.

I love that this child has our love for books!


  1. Hopefully the rest of the tree set up went well!! He's going to be a great reader!

  2. What a handsome little guy you have! Love your blog. Except the spiders are freaking me out. :) You're brave!

  3. The rest of the tree set up happened while he was napping so it went fast! And he was impressed when he woke up. For that matter, every time he walks back into the room we have to go straight to the "tee". Thanks Snuzi, and the spiders freak me out too.
