Deck the Halls

Micah's First Christmas. How amazing and awesome is that? He helped us put up the Christmas tree. He found sheer wonder in the lights and ornaments and humor in there being a tree in the living room.

During the tree decorating, Micah said, "Tree fall down." He has had an obsession with things falling down lately (usually it means that someone or something is hurt or broken). So of course we said, "No, Micah. The tree isn't falling down." Five seconds later, the tree begins to topple. Micah looks at me and says, "No, Mama. Tree fall down. Sure enough, he was right. So Mama held the tree up while Baba ran up to the attic to get the backup reserve tree stand to replace the one that had cracked. Now Micah says, "Mama and Baba save Christmas tree."
Mama showed Micah special ornaments that we acquired while waiting for him.
But his favorite ornaments are the ones that light up or play music. He plays the Charlie Brown Christmas ornaments over and over. Happy boys!
A couple of artsy shots of the tree.
