Little woodland boy decided to touch his toes for the first time while I was putting the finishing touches on our tree and hanging up our last Christmas cards! As any obsessed mommy would do, I grabbed my camera and was able to get some sweet pics of the historical moment. Mmmm...I LOVE my little man! I love that this is his first Christmas! Those happy melodies about jingly bells and the snow man that comes alive, are his FIRST to ever hear and giggle to... Such an exciting time for our little Forest Káel.
I ventured out 3 days before Xmas Eve to our most crazy mall. Yes, it was hectic. But, I kinda liked it. Pretty much every one was in a good mood, so I felt all warm and fuzzy. Sam snapped a pic of me before I walked out the door. I was ready for the long lines, backed up red lights and endlessly filled parking garages. I sang Christmas carols super loudly in the car on my way over and didn't care this time if I was in key or not. It's Christmas time and I was through with stressing about silly little things that won't amount to a drop in a bucket 5 years from now. Sometimes you have to choose to get in the mood for the holidays. I did, and am.
We are having a blast here in big D! Tonight, as we picked up some Pei Wei take out, several tables busted out singing, "Jingle Bells" and a couple other Christmas Carols . I loved it! I was a nut, swinging my arms and singing loudly with my mom as she and I traveled over to get our much craved glass of Chai and Orange Spice tea.
Happy Christmas Eve loves!
