Trucks, Trains, and Trees

In a house full of boys, this Momma cannot help but notice their toys.  They either have wheels or can more than likely cause some sort of danger.

Daniel's new "trick" has been lining up his cars, trains, and trucks.  These were given to him by many different people for his first birthday eight months ago, but all of a sudden, they are getting some much needed attention.

He spends hours throughout his day lining up cars, taking the trains out to run them down the track, and finally give each truck its turn in "Chuck's Garage" (it's the little blue and grey thing in the background).

My biggest fear this season in my house full of boys and their toys was putting up a Christmas tree and the disasters that could follow.  I was mostly worried that Daniel would rip off ornaments and break branches and play with the light sockets and pull it down on himself and the list of worries goes on.  He's done most all of those things already, and it's honestly not been that bad.

But much to my surprise...

Our sweet, six month old, Samuel, has discovered how to roll himself right up underneath the tree!

And it's so precious, I had to share. 

I love my boys and all of their toys, and most of all, I'm thankful that God has given me these great joys this Christmas.  I am so blessed.
