Setting Up the Christmas Train
Walker loves anything to do with trains. His Grammy and Grin bought our family a train to go around our Christmas tree. As we were getting our Christmas stuff set up (a few weeks ago), Walker got so excited to get the "choo choo train" ready to go. He was patient for the most part and the assembly went pretty well (no super stressed out daddy).
After a few days of pretty consistently remind him, "no touch choo choo train," he does a great job of just watching the train go around the track. When he wants to watch the train and it isn't a good time we tell him the choo choo train is taking a nap, so now anytime time the train is off he explains it, "choo choo train take de nap, go nigh, nigh."
Eli doesn't have the whole "no" thing down, so he has to be held if he is in the room with the train, but Walker always reminds him of the rules. But, Eli does enjoy watching the train go around the track and especially hearing the whistle blow.
After the boys got the train all set up, they had to sit down and watch some Sunday night football.
