Oh Christmas Tree! We put up our Christmas tree and let Eli help us decorate. He had a blast! We didn't do a tree last year, so this was his first experience.
He got off the bus after our first snow and ran to the backyard, got his shovel and started shoveling the deck. He was SOOOO excited!
All bundled up after our second snow...a really heavy, snowman building snow :)
He used his creative mind to put snow in the dump trucks from his sand box and haul them to the other side of the yard. Papa and Eli were outside for 2 hours I think.
Papa's birthday was Dec 7th. We celebrated the weekend after as a family since his birthday fell on a Tuesday, and that's our date night. Eli helped with the brownies...
and with blowing out the candles. He bought Papa a flashlight from the secret Santa shop at school. It was a very well thought out gift!
