O Christmas Tree!

We have been in our house for 5 years now and up until this year the tree has always been at the back of our lounge/dinning room because that was where it fit best. Last year we had to buy a smaller tree because since having Logan there just hasn’t been the room for our big tree. This year we had to give it a whole new location because since Logan went into a toddler bed the arm-chair that was in his room is now back in the living room. Yay for more stuff!

Anyway With a bit of a re-jig around the tree is in a more prominent position and to be honest I really like where it is. We have the lights on it on all day long. It’s great and Logan loves it.

With each day that the tree is up Logan messes about with it a little less. When it first went up Logan was napping as we assembled the tree and woke as I started to decorate it. Logan thought it would be great fun to help at the end by adding his touch to the tree. They didn’t stay as they were just baubles dumped into the tree. Bless him.


 The tree has also been the source of many a tantrum. Here Logan is sulking because I won’t let him hit the baubles and trow things at the tree. Apparently this is mean to not let him do this. I couldn’t help but giggle and take a photo.


 It has also been the perfect for playing next to and under. Logan normally destroys his Duplo train but yesterday he happily say next to the tree playing with his train pushing it back and forth. He also likes to roll/throw toys underneath it so he can crawl under it to retrieve them.


This year Christmas seems so much more magical now that Logan is more interested in all the twinkly lights every where and the pretty decorations. He has always had a thing for lights but seeing him get excited over fairy lights in shops and at home just make this time of year so special. I can’t help but smile and feel emotional when I see him looking at it all in such awe and wonder.

    Aww! Mine are getting more interested and 2.5 year old remembers a surprising amount about last year. We had big tree up for eldest’s first christmas, but had a small tree out of way on sideboard last year and again this year. Two and a half yr old and a one and quarter year old, who like to climb things ad throw anything that looks like a ball would get hurt with big tree I think (as would tree). Plus it would be taking up their play space & I don’t want to have to tell the off every day. When they’re a bit older will have big tree again. They like all the lights though & eldest likes Father Christmas. #bestandworst Happy Christmas!

      It’s so hard trying to keep them safe while getting into the christmas spirit with decorations, tree’s and lights.

    Aw, that photo of him is so adorable. I remember that my #2 always liked to pull the tree down! Had to baby proof the tree LOL. #bestandworst

      lol yeah my poor tree at the bottom looks a right mess. but part of me likes that it’s gone like that from him charging around and trying to pull the buables off. It’s like its his contribution.
