The Decorations

Here is Phase 1 of the tree. Dad was brave enough to give them real candy canes to put on the tree. It will be interesting to see if they survive till Christmas. After the candy canes, they put on the decorations they painted. Seems our tree is a little one-sided on decorations. But we left them were the boys put them.

Next step? We put on garland. Not the smartest move on my part. Did you notice it was the 'foam' rings? I didn't realize when I bought it that you have to punch out the holes for the piece to go through to finish the ring. Oh yes... I had a ton of these little 'holes' all over my carpet. Tater had a great time doing that part of it. Tot just kept ripping them off the strand. Both wore them as braclets for a little while.

Here is the best picture I could get of the tree. It was fun.

MERRY CHRISTMAS. Now, I am curious as to how long those candy canes lasted

Couldn't do that at my house.

Dogs & candy canes... wouldn't last long :-)
