Trimming the Tree

Reed loved decorating the Christmas tree. He thought the ornaments were the and especially loved my collection of Crayola ornaments.  Right after we had put a few ornaments on, I had to feed Asher--and Reed brought me a pile of ornaments from off the tree. I think, though, he finally understands that the ornaments are supposed to stay on the tree. He is a little disappointed--I'm pretty sure he would rather play with them.

The master decorator at work:
Ryan helped Reed put the star on top of the tree. Sadly, the star was way too heavy--so our tree is topper-less.
Reed and Elmo posing with the tree:

 After posing for a nice shot, Reed decided it would be appropriate to tackle Elmo, then use Elmo as a pillow:

 After coaxing Reed off the ground, we took a picture with weird lighting so the lights on the tree showed up better:

Then Reed started doing funny poses (not sure why...)

After we put the tree up, we had to put Santa in the window. You can't tell here, but Santa lights up--which Reed loves. He reminds us every night, without fail, to turn Santa on.
In case you are curious (you probably aren't, but I'm going to tell you anyway), Santa is Ryan's favorite Christmas decoration. He even took it with him on his mission. Sadly, it broke on the return trip--but luckily his grandma had a duplicate that she let us have. Santa is the one Christmas decoration we brought with us to Cedar (the rest are still in St. George at my parents' house).

So fun! Looks like Reed really loves decorating the tree. I love his silly pose!
