Oh Christmas Tree...

We got our Christmas Tree up last weekend. So far, we've broken two Christmas balls. The girls have done really good at just looking and not touching. We hear a lot of..."AVA NO!" and peek around the corner to see Carli attempting to lecture Ava on why we don't touch the Christmas tree! So I decided to give them a little tree of their own to decorate. I thought it turned out pretty well. I like the ornaments - the tree itself has an issue of staying on the wall. My command strips aren't doing their part! Of Logan, Carli and Ava, Ava loves it the most which is good because she has heard a lot less lecturing from Carli, at least when it comes to touching the Christmas tree!

I made ornaments with each letter of all three kids names. Carli picked out each color for each kid. Logan got camo, Carli got pink and Ava got purple. Maybe next year, we will actually put these letter combos together to spell their names. For now, Carli just makes sure to tell me that the camo and red ornaments are Cousin Logan's!

On and off, on and off and throw them all on the floor, repeat!


And when Ava completely empties the tree, Carli comes around and exclaims, "Oh NO!" and starts picking them all up. If only she'd do that for all the toys she throws around my house!

The decorated tree, Ava and Carli style!

What a neat idea! How do the ornaments attach to the tree?

What a great idea! I love the "little mother" Carli is with Ava. Sounds a lot like Amanda with her brothers. So glad Logan is getting to spend time with the girls. Hugs to everyone!
