Last Saturday we got our Christmas tree, and we decorated it the very next day. As usual, Isaac and Jonny put the unbreakable “kid” ornaments on the tree. This year they were a little less than enthusiastic. The reason?
Usually, we get a Douglas Fir. This year, most of the Douglas Firs we saw were really, really tall. So we went with a Scotch Pine instead. And guess what? Scotch Pines have really pointy, sharp needles!
The boys kept yelping “Ouch!” with each ornament! Isaac tried to use his gloves, but that didn’t work. Finally, Jonny gave up and would just toss his ornaments onto the branches, hoping that they’d stay on.
The tree still looked very nice, but I think next year we’ll go back to Douglas Fir.
Ben lay on the floor playing with one of the ornaments. Within an hour or so, he had scooted himself under the Christmas tree to see the lights more closely.
