The star shines bright!

We finally got the tree up this weekend. Our tree has personality that is for sure. I used to think it would be so beautiful with white lights and golden ornaments. I'm pretty sure that type of tree would just make me sad. Where would all the boys ornaments go. I have noticed that our tree has taken on a large sports theme. Each year we try to get the boys a onrament that keeps track of their interests and it appears that Rex's moves from his baseball to soccer and has just a touch of football.

Riley is still not interested in the tree. How lucky are we? He occasionally wants to poke at it with other things but really doesn't want to be near it and won't touch it with his own hand. I believe he is still wondering why the tree is inside and not outside.

Justin always wants Rex to put the star on and it is a hysterical adventure each year. Rex is now getting big enough I thought he might actually accomplish it this year. Well..... I think these pictures tell the story better.


  1. I love it...that is too cute! We now have two with the "fancy" ornaments...and then our "Memory" tree...the kids get an ornament each year we make photo ornaments every year. So cute! :)

  2. Charlie Brown has nothing over on you. have the star adventure as well.

  3. Awww, I hope you left the star like that, it's so cute!! Good job Rex!!

  4. Hi Mary!!!! I have that tree with the white lights and gold ornaments that you used to want. I will email you a picture of it. I also love to have the tree with the homemade and kid ornaments on it, but this year I wanted to try something different.
