Yay! It's finally December!

I'm really in the Christmas spirit this year. I started listening to Christmas music right after Halloween! So, I've decided that I want to do something "Christmas-y" with Aiden every day until Christmas day.

Tonight, I took him to Target and we picked out an Advent calendar, some tiny Christmas ornaments, and a mini tree with blinking lights. Each day, I'm going to let him open a door on his calendar, take out an ornament, and hang it on his tree. I will have to find something special to put on the 24th and 25th because they have a bigger space behind the doors. Not sure what yet.

I'm hoping this will become one of our Christmas traditions and will make him look forward to the holiday.

I promise, it looks a lot better in real life! I just don't know how to take a picture with the lights flashing. You can see the first ornament that he hung on his tree this evening. He seems to really like having a tree that he can decorate on his own. (We haven't put our tree up yet, but we've spent a lot of time at my parents' house the past few days and they have four trees that he isn't allowed to touch.)
