The wonder of the season
Christmas, this year, is two-year old Ava thinking that by saying "Turn on, pretty lights!" , the Christmas tree lights up! She loves the houses on our street all a-glow and the new songs (I sang "Rudolph" about 50 times yesterday while giving her a bath)and the treats and the plans to make cookies this weekend. The commercial part of Christmas has not hit her yet, and we hope it never does, but we know that it's almost inevitable. We are focusing on the season, explaining that it's a time to see friends and family and count our blessings.
