toddler friendly Christmas trees.

Since Preston is on the verge of walking any day now, loves to put everything in his mouth, and because I  just don't feel like say no, no, no, no a thousand times (like he even knows what no means yet) we've opted for a smaller and more toddler friendly tree this year. 

I found some great inspiration via pinterest.

Oh, how smart!! I would totally do this to prevent broken ornaments and the constant NO! Haha...can't wait to see what you choose!

My computer won't let me see the photos therefore I can't really comment on this particular post, BUT... I've been meaning to mention something - that 'no water in the eyes' item you shared with us for Preston. I thought it was brilliant because it is even though we are kid-less. I bought one for my nephew and as I was mentioning to a friend of a friend who used it on her child & said to make sure you at least allow water in his face some times - Why? Whats the purpose? Because he could grow up being scared of the water {ocean, pool, etc} - So, use it but don't depend on it. :)
Just thought I'd share.

PS - i LOVE your new side bar photos.

We put up a smaller tree last year, but decided to do a bigger one this a more inaccessible area in our home.
My son has been doing very well, too. We really only had to tell him "no" a few times the first couple of days after we put it up, and now he likes to just look & not touch.
Your idea for this year is a good one, though. Can't wait to see pics! :)

Not sure if you saw this already but the Dahl house has a Pineapple ornament~( and it made me think of your blog! Love all of the little trees you found!
