Here are a few sneak peeks into merry Christmas-making around our parts:
Our local community park does a huge Christmas light show during the holidays. A big fellow in a red suit hides out in one of the heated shelters.
Peanut wore his hat for the occasion. Do you see how intent he is here? He had some serious business to do with the Big Guy.
One of the Christmas traditions both my husband and I were adamant about bringing into our family was cutting our own tree every year. We even did this before the Peanut was in the mix. It’s been unusually warm here in Wisconsin, making it much easier to continue that tradition without complaining. Once home, we had a tiny tree-raising ceremony complete with pink cheeks and hot chocolate.
Here is where we remind Peanut about the true meaning of Christmas. And the scene behind our learning the lyrics to Away in a Manger. He likes to point to “the stars in the sky” that look down where he lay.
Putting these meaningful touches all around our house is such a source of joy for me. Seeing my son start to understand all the concepts of Christmas and engaging in all our traditions is just amazing.
More to come!
