We put up the tree (and then had a lighting issue and took everything down and put it all back up again). The boys are interested in the tree, but they also believe in experimentation. Zeke managed to break an ornament that was made of baked play dough by licking it to pieces, and Ben is determined to electrocute himself with the lights.
Zeke pouted through the song, but at least Ben shook his bells energetically. It was a bit of a let down to our neighbor, who really enjoyed the brass last year. We might just save the rest of the fudge for our own bellies.
