December 9th and we still hadn’t taken down some of our Halloween decorations, let alone started on Christmas- and forget about Thanksgiving! Since Dylan had taken a super late and long nap, I decided that he and I would head out and get the tree and accessories while Aaron put the rest of the kids in bed.
While shopping, Dylan found that snowman wreath and fell in love with it. When you press the foot, it sings ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’ and the cheeks of the larger snowman light up. He carried it around the store the entire time, in the car on the way home, and for a portion of the tree decorating until I hung it on the front door.
Aaron, Dylan and I set up the tree without the others, and since Dylan doesn’t talk, we’re going to pretend like Poppa Bobby the Elf did it all. I can’t wait to hear what the girls have to say about it in the morning!
