Yesterday was our official decorate for Christmas day at our house. But when we pulled out our Christmas lights, we discovered that one set doesn't work anymore. We are down to one measly string of lights now. We used to have 4 or 5 sets kicking around, so I'm not sure what has happened to our supply.
Anyway, we strung the one set of lights around the bottom front of the tree. It looks really sad and pathetic, but Squeaky's comment was, "oooooo! Pretty tree! Pretty lights!!!" Obviously two year olds don't care too much about 24 lopsided lights on the bottom of the tree. We will invest in another string of lights before we put the ornaments on the tree.
One interesting tidbit of info: we have learned that Button is afraid of trees, garlands, and other fake, fuzzy, dark green foliage. That's right, when Daddy held her next to the Christmas tree so that I could get a picture of her first Christmas tree she burst into tears. She proceeded to cry every time a garland or tree had the audacity to come within two feet of her. So sad.
