It’s happening. I am getting sucked into the season. I now understand why people get a bit weird around the holidays, get caught up in Christmas. Because of the children. This is the first year that Oliver gets it. And he is REALLY into it.
This is the first year we have a real tree. The first year we have a full size proper tree. This is the first year we are at home, in a house that we own, for the holidays.
It’s all good. I think Christmas (and a week later, 3rd birthday) is going to be pretty neat through the eyes of a toddler this year.
