  8. Toddler pulls down  one decoration for every two you put up
  9. Toddler wants to play with the train track (there is on surrounding the tree)
  10. Hubby pulls out Thomas, Annie and Clarabelle and turns it on for Toddler
  11. Toddler has a go at driving Thomas
  12. Hubby turns Thomas off and puts away after a good play
  13. Toddler decides to crawl under the tree and pop up behind it
