Oh Christmas tree...

Before I really start my post, Marcus has been dissecting the song O Christmas Tree. The line "Thy leaves are so unchanging" really bothers him. He argues that pine trees don't have leaves they have pine needles to that line in the song is not only unnecessary it's also wrong. Plus, he thinks the whole song is dumb... In my opinion it's way better than the 1984 song called, "Do they know it's Christmastime" which has brilliant lines like, "and there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas" the whole song is so incredibly dumb. P.S. I live in CA and there won't be any snow here this Christmas either.

Okay, now onto the real point, but I think I could do an entire post of bad Christmas songs. We went shopping for our Christmas tree finally. Eli and Emmy ran around the Christmas tree yard say, "this one, this one, this one" and pointing to a million different trees. We eventually picked on and brought it home.

Eli helped Marcus cut the tree, bring it inside, and then water it.

In fact they both had a great time watering it. They didn't want to stop. 

Then it was time to decorate. When we first turned on the lights for some reason Emmy kept trying to blow them out like a candle it was adorable. 

Then on with the ornaments. First they both just sort of tossed them in the tree. Then we showed them how to hang them on the branches so they were all really low and in one spot. 

Emmy putting on another ornament.  
Sometimes at home she likes to dress herself and I let her. She seems to think the bottoms that come with dresses make suitable pants. Whatever works for the girl I suppose.

Yay for a Christmas tree! There are a lot of ridiculous lines for Christmas songs and songs themselves.

Looks like the kiddos had fun :-D
