Day 6: Go get our Christmas tree
Ok, so this year we decided to just buy our tree at Ikea instead of cutting it down ourselves, for lots of reasons. I didn't take pictures as it wasn't as much fun as cutting it down. But the tree it ready to be put up!
Day 7: Visit Grandma and Nono
The boys sat on the rug, in front of the fireplace and watched the Christmas Holiday Train go round and round under Grandma and Nono's tree. Carson could have spent hours doing it. They have a beautiful tree up. Beckett loved it too! Of course, I left our camera at home.
Day 8: Make a gingerbread house
Pretty self-explanatory. Here are some pictures.
We had a HUGE snowstorm here in Ottawa today! And Carson couldn't be happier. He asks to go outside all the time. I have to admit, it's rather hard to go outside with a 4 month old in this weather, so I kept putting Carson out on the back deck and Beckett and I would watch him from inside! It worked like magic, Carson was happier than anything to be outside with his dump trucks and tractors. Then when Daddy got home, he helped him shovel. Then after Beckett went to bed, Carson and I trekked all the way to the bookmobile and stopped at some hills on the way back. I'm sure the winter wonderland thrill will wear off at some point, but until then we will be enjoying it.
And on the B-ray front, we started him on cereal yesterday. He loves it. When I first started Carson on cereal he was nowhere as interested as Beckett is. See for yourself.
