While Cory's family was here for Thankgiving we set up and decorated the Christmas tree. It worked out great and Cory and I even snuck in a trip to the mall to do some Christmas shopping. But the best part of it was that on Friday night Pops got out the train set and set it up around the tree. Cole was completely fascinated (and still is). He sat and watched the train for a LONG time. At one point he got up and walked away, we all thought he was done and were remarking on how long it had held his attention, then he returned with a pillow and flopped down on it for a more comfortable vantage point! It was pretty cute! He is still very interested in it so it has served as a great buffer between Cole and the tree and he hasn't even pulled too many ornaments off! Here are some pictures of the process.
