We kept things simple this year and just went to a local farm and picked out a Christmas tree. We might of had some bad luck though, because Chris is convinced it isn't going to make it to Christmas. It isn't taking much water....so we are going to attempt to re-cut the bottom to see what happens! Bradley had a great time walking around the lot and looking at the trees, of course Ellie was happy about the whole thing as always.
We did a lot of the decorating after we put Ellie to bed that night. She was tired from our trip to Grandma's house. Bradley was really into the whole process this year. He wanted to hang up every ornament, and had questions about all of them. He even helped me decorate the tree upstairs that is silver balls for the front window.
It is so magical to see the holiday through is eyes. I love his enthusiasm. Last year was really fun with him, but this year has been amazing to say the least. He talks about Christmas constantly, Mr. Elf, and baby Jesus. I just love this little boy! After we finished with the tree, he changed into his gingerbread man pjs and we watched The Mickey's Christmas Carol as a family. It was so much fun! After reading a few holiday books he was tuckered out. Just trying to do the simple things, and make them as special as possible.
We had a little family dinner to celebrate Bradley's birthday last weekend. It was the perfect time for some Christmas pictures in front of the tree. Could they be any cuter??
The boys ran off to play, but sweet Ellie just hung out under the tree. Gotta love a baby in a smocked Christmas dress.
Then my parents came over to give Bradley his gifts. He is in LOVE with his new spiderman jacket. He has worn it just about everywhere!
A bit more than two weeks left!! Merry Christmas!!
