I was chomping at the bit on Thanksgiving night to put up Christmas decorations, so Nick and I made the trek upstairs and got all the stuff down.  We had thought about getting a real tree this year, because I think our tree is too short (or we're too tall?), but decided to just stick with our artificial one this year.  We were interested to see what Asher would think of it when he woke up the next morning, and he loved it!  He didn't want to leave the tree to get out of his pajamas.  Of course, he also wants to take off the ornaments and generally make a big mess of it, but I think he'll learn to not do that (I hope!).  He also has yet to discover the button on one of the ornaments that plays "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas," which is good. 

Latte, on the other hand, tried to climb the tree, and then gets stuck.  He also tried to pull everything off of the mantle.  We're really hoping that the novelty will wear off for him soon, too! 

Here's some pictures to enjoy!

Here, we were TRYING to get a shot for our Christmas card (which Nick designed and is GORGEOUS!), and someone wouldn't cooperate!  (It's ok...the one we ended up with is better, anyway!)

A little bit of cuteness for your holiday season:

(Ok...a lot of cuteness!)

...and some silliness to balance it out!
