Here is our Christmas tree, yes I know, it is a thing of beauty. We put the tree up on Saturday, but I put the finishing touches on it today. Joe has been great with the tree, he takes the ornaments off and brings them to me. After he hands me the ornament he says, "Thank-you," and runs away to retrieve more ornaments. This goes on pretty much all day and I.love.this.game.
I love looking at the tree, with all of our little snowmen and family ornaments, it looks like us.
Tonight I took the boys to Friendly's for dinner. They do fundraisers where they donate 15% of your bill to the school of your choice and we went in support of John's school. We had a lot of fun and the place was jam packed with CCS families and teachers. We ate until we wanted to barf and than left for home. On the way home we looked at all of the beautiful Christmas lights and talked about the joy that they bring. I love hearing the things that the boys say and the way that their minds work.
This morning I took Jeremy to the State Theatre in New Brunswick where we saw a production of Eric Carle's The Hungry Little Caterpillar and other stories. It was put on by the Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia and it was absolutely wonderful!! Click on that link to get their tour schedule and to meet Eric Carle himself, you will not be disappointed if you decide to attend.
The best part of the morning was Jeremy and I were together and we really enjoyed the show as well as each other's company. He is really maturing! Last time we went to a show he was antsy and fidgeting a lot. Today he was engrossed in the show and was really enjoying himself. I had tears in my eyes as I realized that he is on his way to becoming a little man. (big sigh)
Where does the time go?
