Beginning to Look Like Christmas

We are finally getting up some of our Christmas decorations! And as we've spent time together, I've tried to remember some of the sweet and cute things the kids have said...

After noticing that the Christmas tree had lights, Christopher (5 yrs) said, "hey, look at those 'little fire guys'!!"


As Christmas approaches I begin to tuck little gifts into the kids' stockings. The kids just noticed the first gift in the stocking.

I knew they knew when Lydia (3 yrs) approached me and asked,"Can we open our socks?"

Everyone helped decorate.... if only for a few minutes or to share some drool:)

Do you see who is looking at Nate from the reflection of his ornament??

Chris' comment was funny though. I showed them that we could see Lydia. And Chris explained it to Anna saying," We could see her afflection."


And Little Lydia DID try to help Daddy hang our first "outside" lights:) We usually don't get to decorate too much outside:) So we are excited to have a couple of lights outside and hope to add a little more next year:)

She was out there for just minutes and she came back in saying," I need to come inside, my fingers not go."

LOL!! I guess her little fingers were too cold to move;) An explanation of the hat and mittens while decorating the tree inside;)

"Little fire guys" is such a cute name for the lights.
I find it interesting that you begin to tuck gifts into their "socks" so early. How do the children do with the anticipation?
Such a cute picture of the shared drool.
And I really liked the comment about the fingers not going.

Beautiful pictures! I love their do you get away with gifts in the stockings so early? Mine could see them coming down the stairs.

Love the fingers not moving. We haven't hung anything outside. It is in the 30's this week and low 20's when the sun goes down. TOO COLD!
