we started little man a collection of fire engines his first christmas, so we now have seven fire engines decorating our tree. m1 has a collection of five fairies and m2 has two snow buddy ornaments.
we always enjoy decorating the tree together. little man puts all of his fire engines clustered together near the bottom so he can play with them. m1 puts her fairies out of reach of m2 (i have several wings to re-glue). m2's favorites this year are the fairy tale books (pictured above). i find her frequently standing by the tree looking at each book. it is so fun to hear the children's comments as we unpack ornaments... remember this one, i love snoopy, etc. it's fun establishing family traditions together.
