I love Christmas....and all the moments that come with them.Getting the tree up...the stockings too.
eatting chocolate from the advent calendar.
Lighting our four pine trees outside and seeing them glow
Of all the holiday traditions in our house my favorite has to be the Christmas pyramid...
which was the best purchase I made while living abroad.
It has its own magic as the angels twirl and the bells chime. love it.
And love this "moment" from Tessa's first Christmas with us last year.
This year we made it to Brunch with Santa. Three of the four kiddos were there. It was the first year Judson chose basketball over Brunch with Santa. I get it, but I missed him being there for this tradition. It is a wonderful event and of course the main event is giving your wish list to Santa. All the kids were very excited to do so. I had my camera ready as I knew I might catch a "moment".
2 years ago I caught this moment when Jack was 2 years old and met Santa for the first time.
So, I was ready for any possible moment this year.
With Tessa being really excited about meeting Santa and showing no signs of worry I really didn't think she would have the same kind of moment Jack did.
That is until Daddy put her on that strange man's lap. That is not o.k. and Tessa told the world, just as a 2 year old will do.
And yes, it was hilarious again. I was (not so secretly) happy to have
another classic Christmas "moment".
It still makes me giggle....what is wrong with me?
