December Daily - The 1st

This December started out differently for us this year.  Traditionally we get the outside lights up in November, and they don't get turned on until December 1st.  This was about the only 'normal' thing that happened today/  Lights went up in November.  Lights got turned on today for the first time.  I set up our inflatable Mickey and Yoda (I mean Santa Mickey and Santa Yoda) right before I went to pick the kids up from daycare.  When we walked home they could see the lights blazing from down the street, and Sophia was SO excited to see Mickey!

We also traditionally set up our tree and indoor decorations on the 1st.  This year we did that early as Kris is out of town and we didn't want to wait for him to get home, but also didn't want to do it without him.  So the decorations went up a few days ago.  The kids are thrilled with them so far.  Sophia is handling the tree MUCH better than Aiden did at that age.  He thought that every ornament needed to be tested as a baseball.  Pretty sure he was doing some quality testing ;).

This morning the kids came downstairs to find their Advent Calendars set out on the kitchen table.  They were SO excited.  Each has their own calendar this year, which is fun for both of them.  I also picked up a super cute magnetic Christmas Tree countdown game which they are loving.  All in all a great start to our December!  Now lets hope for some snow!  Aiden keeps asking when the snow is going to arrive.  I think he is too young to understand the finer details of El Nino just yet.  :)
