deck the halls with flying ornaments! fa la la la la la la la laaaaaaa!

after a week of begging,
they found a pack of ornaments i was hiding in the coat closet
and took matters into their own hands.
i was just so happy they were doing it and not me.
and for once i didn't even care where they hung them on the tree.
who am i, and where is emily?
it was so cute.
the christmas music was playing,
the kids were laughing and having a ball.
i was feeling so proud of our little brood, and our happy little festive home.
until max and brennan started fighting about who got to put on the last ornament,
and it ended with max throwing it at brennan's face.
at which point i laughed a little bit inside b/c the shocked look on brennan's face was funny.
it was just plain funny.
and then was i was putting max in timeout,
and letting brennan put a sticker on his sticker chart,
chase quietly walked around the tree taking all of the ornaments
and their little hangers off of the tree.
man does our tree smell amazing though:)
next on the list: THE TRAIN.
pray for us.
{insert crying laughing emoji face here. like 7 times.}

I laughed at Chase. What a funny boy. I have a theory about the third child, and it seems Chase is fitting into that theory perfectly. I think the 3rd child is always the one that can get away with the most because they are so cute and calm and different than the older two, that it is just harder for the parents to get after the 3rd, even when that child is being especially naughty. Am I right? Does he fall into that category?
