Starting to look a lot like Christmas

Our friend Jen stayed with us Friday night and we happened to come upon Santa and Mrs. Claus on our outing to Crown Point Town Square today. Dylan did much better this year with Santa, but he is still scared of the old guy - notice the nervous little smile. Matthew did great! I don't even think he realized what was going on. The candy cane probably helped (and no I didn't let him eat it!)

Saturday night, we got all cosy with some hot chocolate (with Baileys for us) and we put up all our holiday decorations, including the Christmas tree. Dylan did a great job helping us decorate (around the bottom of the tree).

Sunday morning Matthew woke up to discover, to his delight, the Christmas tree. He loved the star on top and kept pointing to it. Usually, we put up an antique, gold leaf angel that I have had for years. But this year Dylan wanted the disco (flashing) star.
