The Christmas Tree Is Up

We finally got Christmas out of the boxes and storage totes from the basement! The kids did a great job cleaning their rooms so they could help decorate the tree. And here it is...

The Hansen Family Christmas Tree

It's a six foot fiber optic lighted tree. It's nice but with the vaulted ceiling I want to go for the slim twelve footer I saw at Walmart the other day... *sigh* someday. 

The biggest laugh of the whole evening goes to my son, Caleb, who being the dutiful 6 year old boy he is, followed directions to the "T". While I was busy going through items in the other room, I yelled for him to fan the tree out while they were waiting for me. I walked back into the room to find the tree just the way I left it, standing up looking like it just came out of the box... except now with a small fan aimed directly at the tree... plugged in and running. 

You have to give it to the boy... he knows how to do what he's told. =D
