It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Well I couldn't take it anymore. This weekend we broke down and put up the Christmas tree. You would not believe the mess I left the tree and decorations in from last year, but when I put all of it away I was very pregnant and in psycho nesting mode! :)

We were excited to decorate in the new house for the first time, but a bit hesitant about putting the tree up with Cooper. He is pulling up on everything so we knew we had to have some sort of baby proofing going on with the tree.

After careful thought and research we went the way of the Rednecks and screwed it to the floor! Laugh if you will, but it is so sturdy he could climb it like a monkey and be okay! It has already come in quite handy too.........about 2 hours after it was finished he grabbed a low branch and hoisted himself right up - nothing moved but the ornaments swaying just a bit!

Enjoy the pictures!
