Christmas this year is going to be a hoot! Lucas is all about Santa and can hardly wait for him to come. If it wasn't for all the stores and Christmas lights in the neighborhood, we would wait to bring up the whole idea until after Thanksgiving. However, no such luck! Seeing Santa and Christmas trees everywhere we go has definitely created some excitement in this house. For a three year old, Christmas is light years away!
Lucas got very excited when I told him he could write a letter to Santa and decorate it. I asked him what he wanted Santa to bring this year and he came up with quite the list! After making the list, decorating was serious business. He was so intense and made sure everything was painted just right. "Santa loves red...I do too, it's my favorite color!"
Here's the final product!
It a little hard to read but here's what his list reads:
- Doctors Medical Play Kit
- Alarm Clock
- A Pen that goes "click"
- Coffee Press
- Orange Cones
- Big Crayon money Bank
Keep in mind, this is right after a trip to Toy-R-Us to check out the potential goods! Only Lucas could come up with a no toy list for Christmas!
The next day we received a fun gingerbread making kit from Grandma Anderson. It had a rough time in the mail so we had to "glue" some pieces together. However, we were much too excited to wait for them to dry.
The house needed a little extra support and I was impressed Lucas gave up some of the candy for decorations. It was a challenge at times because that's a lot of temptation setting right in front of candy eating monster! He made sure to try all the different kinds available. "I love candy everyday!"
Mommy & Lucas...my, my mommy looks pregnant with those chubby cheeks! :)
The final house, barely holding together!
Thanks Grandma A. We love and miss you!
