Our tree has been standing in our living room since Sunday in only a skirt. Tonight was our family night for decorating. Angie anticipated that David would not be thrilled with hanging ornaments, but thought the lights would catch his attention.
After all last year he loved them
This year when he spots lights he says "lights lights."
There was hope on Angie's part that this would begin a fun family time that David would always look forward too... here is how the evening really went...
Daddy and David inspecting the lights
after about 30 seconds David moved on to playing with his nativity
he then requested to water the tree after about 2 minutes with the nativity
upon spilling water he ran into the family room where we had on the Rockefeller Christmas Tree lighting special... this was providing our Christmas tree decorating music. David decided dancing was better than decorating
at commercial break David ran back into the living room to "clean up" the spilled water
(notice how far the lights made it up the tree)
when another helper joined us
Mama declared everyone to bed and she finished the tree
Maybe next year, but probably never will there be interest in decorating... like father like son.
