Christmas In November
Well, after visiting Oliveaux's blog I was inspired to begin my Christmas right away. I have been anxiously waiting for Christmas as this will be my 1 year old son's first real Christmas with us so I couldn't wait to decorate and watch the excitement in his face. Out of respect for Thanksgiving, we agreed that we would only decorate the Family and Library room for now.
Of course, we couldn't set up this early with a fresh tree so we purchased an inexpensive artificial white tree(macfrugals)for $49.00.
When baby Daniel saw the tree for the first time, his entire face lit up. His response was "oooooooohhhh". It was a beautiful site. He seemed so amazed seeing his reflection in the ornaments. Naturally, it prompted his next instinct which was to reach out to feel the ornaments. However, we have amazingly done a very good job(so far) of getting him to refrain from touching when told. So, instead, I removed the ornaments that he seemed most enamored with and allowed him to feel and observe the ornament from my hand.
Here is baby Daniel exploring the miniature artificial tree in the Library.
