Christmas Decorations

Decorating the house for Christmas this year, and keeping it decorated, has been kind of challenge for me.  Barron is at the age that anything new is interesting to him and nothing is off limits.  The ornaments never stay on the tree nor do the presents stay under the tree!
This was before the tree was decorated, but this has now become a good spot for him to go to annoy his Mother...

This reindeer has also become an object of his obsession.  This is where I put it to stay...

Well it doesn't stay there.  It has now rotated into one of Barron's favorite toys.

Here is Barron last Christmas while Bryan decorated the tree...

And here he was this Christmas.  It's weird how similar Bryan is in both pictures.

Our Little Star

Last Monday Barron was in his first production.  Everyone his age was a star in the Church Christmas program.  Bryan and I were one of those parents that not only brought the camera, but also the video recorder.  He did nothing but stand there, but we were soooo proud!
Barron's group was the youngest so they were the very last to come out, keeping them out there the shortest amount of time.
Here are the older kids.  Everyone was in place and it was going so well.

Then Barron's group came out.  It became a little chaotic.  The lady in red held on to Barron the entire time.  I guess she was scared he would make a run for it.  I was shocked but he never cried.  Just stood there with this blank stare.

I of course had to race the other Mom's to the aisle to take pictures.  Never thought that I would be doing that!

It was so much fun, I can't wait for the next one!
