The day after Thanksgiving, I pulled out the boxes. Those magical boxes full of all things shiny and Christmas-ey. Joey was on it before I got the lid off all the way... this kid LOVES Christmas!
From that moment on for the next week, everytime I got even close to the door he would pipe up, "Christmas tree? Mama go get Christmas tree?" He was relentless!
And seriously, with cute like this, I'm surprised I lasted as long as I did with out a tree...
I mean, seriously, look at this face!
We did get a tree at Target this year and Joey was in heaven wandering around the tree display.
Ours came home and was set up, but we had to wait for Daddy to come home and put the lights on it before the decorating could start.
While we waited, we decorated the banister.
Put our elf Owen on the shelf.
Set up the creche... wait there's something wrong here.....
We played hooky from school and headed to see the big man.
Jimmy was excited to see Santa this year. Joey took one look and ran up for a big hug shouting , "Hi Grandpa!"
THen we went for a ride on the train set up in the other side of the mall.
Mama! Mama! Look! It's the OR&L!!!
They waited very patiently so they could ride together.
Great fun was had by all!
