Christmas Is Coming...

So far this has been the best Christmas EVER!!! And it's not even December! I can already see how much fun a 2 year old will make things. For instance, the other day we put up our Christmas decorations, and already this was the best time we've ever had doing it. But, the Christmas tree was the BEST. Ever decoration or ornament she held she would gasp and her hands went onto her cheeks, she was utterly enthralled with the whole thing. Truly excitable if you will. Oh, and since the tree has been up the lights have yet to be turned off... she learned how to plug it in, so try as I might to conserve energy, it just ain't happening. Too bad all of our decorations haven't fared too well. I have a small collection on my kitchen table of things needing to be glued back together. It will be interesting to see what survives children. Ah curious young minds, and hands.

So all before Dec. 1st we've:

Attended the Festival of Trees in Downtown Riverside. Which included crafts, storytime and a visit with Santa, and snacks. It's the first year we've gone and I am all set to make that a yearly tradition. It was a lot of fun! (Oh, and don't mind the first few fuzzy photos, I did not know how to focus the dang phone's camera).

Decorated (for the most part) our house. We still have 1 or 2 things to do inside, and Wes needs to put up the exterior lights. And, of course had a Christmas movie playing with popcorn for when the little one got bored.

And walked around the Shoppes of Chino Hills... which we will have to go to again, because the train we went to ride wasn't running while we were there.
