Jack loves to yell ‘Christmas Here!’ every time he sees brightly colored lights, Christmas trees or anything that might resemble Christmas.
We got our Christmas tree tonight, courtesy of the neighborhood tree stand. Aaron was grumbling because we weren’t going to the mountains like we usually do, but the guy at the stand was a sweetheart and Jack, who rarely warms up to strangers, was smitten.
We even got a photo:
Now we have Christmas Here and it’s ready to be lit and decorated. I think this might be the year Jack starts to ‘get’ Christmas.
I can’t wait.
Santa’s big present for the boys was delivered today. The snow is falling outside and I’m dreaming and scheming about cookies and crafts. We’ve pulled out the Christmas books, and I think we read ‘Who is Coming to Our House?’ at least six times today.
Tell me, is Christmas Here at your house?
