I can't believe it's already the first!
Emma opened the first window on her advent calendar this morning (thanks for the reminder Mrs H!), although I'm pretty sure she was confused by the whole thing, I still enjoyed the ritual and look forward to doing it every morning! And who knows, she might even get it after a couple of days. This year we decided to put up a tiny table top Fir instead of our usual - we figured it was the *safer option with little miss explorer around. She looks at the tree in wonder each night as I turn on the lights. She's still not quite tall enough to touch it from the ground so I carry her up to get a better view, she'll usually brush the needles and ornaments with her hands (and gets quite feisty when it's time to go back down). Christmas is definitely more fun with a little one around!
It's probably a little too late but I want to share my favorite source for holiday and tree decorations - Lancaster Market is the best! My most favorite things on our tree are from there.
