Getting Ready for Christmas

Well, I skipped right over Thanksgiving without blogging.  I am not a very good blogger.  I think it is partially because writing is not my strength, but also because I don't think anybody actually reads this but me.  :) Well, anyway...

I have had so much fun seeing Christmas fun through Lucas's eyes.  He has really enjoyed decorating, seeing Christmas lights, etc. Lucas and Gracen had so much fun decorating a gingerbread house together.  It kept them busy and quiet for an hour and a half.  That is well worth ten dollars!  We decorated our tree.  Lucas really enjoyed playing with the candy canes but also decorating the tree with them.  He hung the ornaments in pairs.  He put 2 ornaments on each branch he decorated.  Then I went behind him and spread them out a little more.

Every year, I buy a new photo ornament with a picture for that year.  I really enjoy seeing how we change each year (especially Lucas).


Every year we have a picture of Lucas with Santa and Lucas is crying.  Well, Lucas is still afraid of Santa.  He would not sit in his lap or even talk to him.  He wanted his present from Santa, but he wanted me to get it!

Lucas has been asking questions about Santa this year.  It is our goal to teach Lucas about the true meaning of Christmas and Jesus during the holiday season.  He is learning so much!  We have been reading him Bible stories at night before bed.

I enjoy old pictures of Lucas as a baby.  Blogging has given me a chance to reminisce.  He is growing so much lately.  He is really changing from a toddler into a preschooler.  He has also gotten so tall!

This is Lucas's first Christmas. He was 9 months and crawling everywhere!



I forgot, we actually have one picture of Lucas with Santa and he is not crying.

I love these PJ's!

This is Lucas in 2007.  He was almost 2.


I think these next 2 are so funny!

Last year was fun.  Lucas was almost 3.  He was crazy about Thomas the train!



I really look forward to posting pictures of this Christmas.  This is such a fun time of the year!  I wish everyone a blessed holiday!
