It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

The three of us have had so much fun getting ready for Christmas this year. Although Charlie doesn't really know what to expect (considering that he's never had a Christmas :), he seems to know that something exciting is in the air. I just love the holidays and, like everything else, they are made so much more fun with the addition of Charlie.

We spent a chilly afternoon picking the perfect Christmas tree...
The chainsaw only scared us a little bit.
The fine selection in the Albertson's parking lot...
Our tree-decorating evening was so much fun (and only a little chaotic). Charlie loved seeing the lights and all the ornaments. But, not surprisingly, he was desperate to get said lights and ornaments in his mouth. :)
Those of you getting packages from us this year might notice a few tears in the paper... :)
I love getting out our Christmas decorations and ornaments every year. So many of them bring back such wonderful memories! This little tree--which was always at my grandmother's house when I was growing up; she gave to me after noticing that I had admired it every year since I was about Charlie's age--always makes me so nostalgic. :)
Our tree-decorating helper was quickly relegated to the couch. :)
He was frustrated with his distance from the close, and yet, so far...
Determined to get there somehow!
As you can guess from my last post, we have also been trying to visit Santa. It took 3 trips to North Park (and a little begging), but we finally got our chance. Santa was so sweet and Charlie was very relieved to finally get to schmooze with the jolly old guy and deliver his list in person. Santa requested cookies on Christmas Eve, so Charlie and I will have to start baking!

Waiting in line for our big moment...
Excited, and only a little nervous...
Pure admiration. :)
This really is the most wonderful time of the year, isn't it??
