:: After some disappointed searching, we found an amazing Christmas tree lot filled with Oregon-grown evergreens. It smelled like heaven and the tree was perfect. We're definitely going back next year.
:: We took Colby to see Frozen, his first in-theater movie. He kept saying, "wow," over and over again, with big eyes. He's now obsessed with the soundtrack and busts a move whenever he hears a song from it.
And it sure looked pretty (I wish I took a picture when everything was up, but this was all I managed)
and by 6:41 that evening Alice joined our family
:: We sent out our first Christmas card, which means we're officially adults now (just in case finishing college, the two kids, and buying a house didn't do it)
We played games and finished a puzzle
Ate wonderful food
Reenacted the Nativity
Admired the Christmas lights
(some of us were more alert than others)
And snuggled...oh, how we snuggled
Christmas Eve we opened our traditional Christmas jammies
The next morning I saw Colby's face light up when he spied the tree.
Christmas is such a magical time of year for a two year old
...and a 27 year old
So far I'm loving it.
