It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
We did luck out today though... Davin's flight tonight was canceled, so he is actually here for more than 48 hours!
When I went in to the Bud's room this morning, instead of saying the usual "wake up" he said "dada" in a big whine - as in "what are you doing here, I know that Dad is home."
This is the last time we have together before Christmas weekend, so we went to get a tree.
We decided to put it up outside on our new (but not quite finished) deck.
Because of the "L" shape of our house by the deck, we can enjoy the tree from the den, where we hang out much of the time, and the living room, where we will be entertaining for Christmas.
The Bud helped with the shoveling while we worked on the lights.
Tonight we enjoyed the view.
On a wacky Bud note...
There has been a slight obsession with a small pack of swim diapers that the Bud found in a closet. Here he is wearing them on his arms. I think he was pretending they were wings for awhile.
We even caved and allowed one to come with us in the car to the store on Saturday.
We did, however, leave the favorite red, spatula handle at home.
Who needs real toys?
