if you want your kids to stop touching the tree...

if you want your kids to stop touching your tree,
put a train around it:)
do you know why?
are you ready?
b/c then they will just touch the train.
genius i know.
works like a charm every year.
and after chase almost toppled the tree down on top of himself for the third time in one day,
we decided it was time.
so instead of knocking the tree down on top of himself,
he is now knocking the train off of its track about a million times a day.
sooooo worth it.
ya win some, ya loose some.
just depends on what you're aiming to win i guess.
something to note:
when you don't put up your tree train  up until 10 days before christmas,
it's just about right.
b/c the thrill of it never gets old,
and the magic takes you right up to Christmas's front door.
and two hours later,
they'll still be going strong.
or he.
who needs decorations when you've got a train and a tree?

Note to self: get a train. Because a Christmas tree without a train just doesn't look right!
