Christmas Lights Oh Joy!

If you are a member of this household putting up Christmas lights is an annual tradition!

 You know where your the man of the house drags out lights he so "neatly" put up last year, climb up on a latter to new heights, asking his wife if they are even for the 100th time, a couple of curse words after discovering a strand of lights have stopped working once they have been strung, chasing kids, scoping out what the neighbors are doing, and so on.

My husband came home early from work one day and the weather was just prefect so he declared it was Christmas light outside day! I must admit my eyes rolled for this event. I love the end results but it is always adventure to get there. So hubby changed clothes and I got the kids ready for their first adventure of putting up Christmas lights outside in this household.

So here are some amazing highlights of  last week!

The weather was actually really nice not winter feeling at all so we were all enjoying the "winter" weather in our T-shirts. Hubby rocking his gym shorts as he climbs the latter and other objects that had me repeating more then once "I am not taking you to the emergency room" or "how are you going to explain to your command that you hurt yourself by climbing on something you shouldn't?".

I also had numerous heart attack moments! Christopher would ask me for something and I turn around and both of the little monkeys would be trying to climb up the latter to help Daddy hang up Christmas lights on the roof. I realized that playing in parks may have aided into their no fear of wanting to climb on things. Oh the joy of having little ones who dare to be fearless!!!

Caleb and Caydance are able to entertain themselves very well and during this fun adventure found the stroller/trike to mess with. So Caleb was pushing Caydance through our leaf riddle yard giggling as they crunched over the leaves! I did find a massive leaf among the many. I can tell you I cannot wait to rake these bad boys up! When you live in military housing there are only so many days that they will pick up leaves and yard stuff so when you have massive treats you wait until the tree drops that last bad boy!!!!

The one of biggest highlights was Caleb getting into decorating and wanting to help! He is always wanting to help so we always have to find ways for him help or he will get in over his little head. So Caleb and I decided to make a chocolate truffle bush from our left over shatterproof bulbs. So I had Christopher string the lights and we created something that I wanted to eat!

Finally as the evening winded down I was able to snap the end results and a couple of selfies of this adventure! I am often the one snapping the pictures and I have to make an effort to get on the other side of the lens more often.
