Wednesday was December 1, so we wasted no time getting the Christmas tree decorated. This year was the first time I've been brave enough to let Team Danger decorate the entire tree, and not just a choice few non-breakable ones. But they did a great job, and even managed to limit the dancing, wrestling and light saber play for a few hours.
Wednesday was also the start of the advent calendar. Mom passed our family advent calendar down to me when Alex was born, and they take turns decorating it every day.
This was also the second year of the LEGO advent calendar. Each day has a LEGO surprise. This way, we have two happy boys each day, and they don't fight over whose day it is to hang an ornament on the tree.
