under the tree



so, every year, we have a train under our tree. the nice one we had last year is out of commission....

so, we got this little one. the kids LOVE it. i LOVE it. HOWEVER... this is the state of the tree now. it is really hard to keep the ornaments on the tree when UNDER the tree is so much fun!

check out all the nascars that come and watch. sometimes they get to ride the train... other times, the nascars are hit by the train... they like to see the whole thing get de-railed... fun times ;)


notice the state of the nativity at the fireplace... i guess that is the whole purpose of the toy nativity - cant hurt (except nate LOVES to get into the fireplace rocks... and those are SOOO annoying to clean up!)

Oh yes...the train. we had one of those a year or two ago. I don't think it made it to Dec 5th before it was broken. That is hilarious that your kids turn it into a nascar death track.

I like how almost everything that your kids (mostly aaron) do involve nascar (turning into TX WT?) And yes that is the whole purpose of the Little People Nativity set...for the kids to play with, what kid doesn't love it!

thanks for the pictures of the train. Mason was sitting here and saw it RIGHT AWAY and went all the way to his room to get his "stool" so he could get a better look at your train picture~

we don't even have any fun under out tree and the kids are STILL attracted to it! no harm really, just frustrating sometimes.

That's so fun - Sydney is obsessed with trains this year - the Polar Express is her favorite, I think we watch it just about every day! I don't imagine a train under our tree would last very long! :) Merry Christmas!
