Sometimes I wonder...

Why I bother. Case in point... This is my Chistmas tree, fully decorated. Please note that Allison was asleep when this photo was taken.


And this is my Christmas tree when Allison is awake.


Its a little hard to see, but pretty much the tree is bare of ornaments below midway up the tree... they are scattered (Allison would probably say nicely placed) at the base of the tree. Allison takes then off to play with them and collect them. She's also quite fascinated with the lights... she keeps trying to pick off the individual lights.
At least we did the smart thing and went fairly minimalist (and child safe) with the ornaments. Ahh... life with a toddler.

HA! Consider yourself lucky! From the looks of it, you don't have to go hunting for your ornaments. I am finding our Christmas ornaments in multiple drawers, boxes, bags, other toys, clothes, bicycle seats, beds...

Christmas trees just aren't the same when you have to put a gate around them to keep out the kids! Your tree's beautiful despite the floor decor!
