Shameless Holiday Spirit Lifting

The Christmas Spirit is alive and well in Our House. D has been introduced to The Christmas Tree and told that whenever he would like to "see" the tree he just needs to ask.
D: "Maaama. See the tree?"

Me: "Oh, you want to go touch the Christmas tree?"

D: "I do, I do, I dooooo-aaa!", he sing-songs.

I hold his hand as we walk to the tree while he stomps his feet really fast and says "I running." This is followed by the gentle touching of branches and breathy "wow-ing". Also some sniffing and some "Can you see it?"

Lord, I love that boy.

And here for your viewing pleasure... The Tree

You three are so beautiful Stella!!! And let me say...this post brought tears to my eyes...the beauty of how we see...that there is more to "seeing" in life than just with our eyes...and our hearts shed the most light of all.

I hope you and your family are enjoying every moment of this blessed holiday is such joy when children are young like your's are!!

Awww. You're sweet! I guess it's the weight loss (see the diet ticker) and the time of year. I did say I love Christmas, didn't I? Talk about looking good! That new doo of yours and the ring on your finger are making you fairly glow, girl!!!
