Barney Update and Christmas Tree Decorating

Barney Update: I bought another Barney, but decided to wrap him up as a Christmas present. I think it will be the first time that a present makes an impression on Eliza...and will, no doubt, make Santa her hero!

Since we came home from China in October 2006, this will be our 3rd Christmas with Eliza. And what a difference a year has made...this is the first year that she participated in decorating the tree and has NOT taken off every ornament within her reach. Now, that's not to say that she's still not fascinated by the shiny or jingly ornaments, but at least she puts them back on the tree this year. Looking at the pictures from this year and comparing them to last year, I'm reminded of how baby-like she still was last year. Enjoy the pictures!

I am SO impressed with Eliza's participation decorating the tree, that is HUGE!!! (Emma hung one ornament with prompting and left the scene after that). Eliza and Alley look really cute and I love your tree. :) So, has E been looking for Barney? Have the camera ready when she opens the new Barney, I wish that I could be there to see her reaction!
