Christmas has landed at our new house in Clayton. The tree has been purchased, decorated and the stockings have been hung. And that is about all that will be done this year. With the newest member of our family to arrive very soon, I am trying to decorate with as little to clean up afterwards:)
We went to get our tree this past weekend...the weather was bad...cold and rainy, but we got a great tree. Bobby ran around and played chase with some older kids that he thought were playing with him. So it was really left to mom and dad to pick out the perfect tree. We then brought it home and let it dry off and began the decorating Sunday morning.
Bobby was really excited to decorate the tree and enjoyed putting ornaments on with much concentration. Most of them ended up in the same general area, but that was alright. I just enjoyed watching him have fun.
The Elf on the Shelf (named Mervin) in our house, has also made his way into the house. I don't know that Bobby really understands what Mervin's job is, but he has had a wonderful time trying to find him each and every morning. And asking me "how did he get there mommma? Is he magic?" It is truly a wonderful experience to witness Christmas (and everything else for that matter) through the eyes of a little one.
