Day 337- Christmas Tree time

We weren't able to make it to French Creek because I fell asleep during Jackson's nap, but we were able to go out to Beverly and pick out a tree. Next year, when Jackson is old enough to talk and tell us what he's thinking a little better than he can now, we'll go to French Creek and cut down the tree ourselves. For now, I'm happy to have a real tree set up in the front room! We had a fun morning, Jackson loves his new "big boy" highchair. We got the Fisher Price space saver on Black Friday because it was only $30. He won't have to use it for a while, but it'll be good for traveling and be a great booster for when he's ready. Even more than the high chair, he loved the box it came in :)

After his nap we headed out and got the tree, where he had a lot of fun pointing to everything, touching all the trees, and hanging out with the gentlemen working at the place. I'm glad to see that it only takes him a couple of minutes, if that, to warm up to new people and places these days. We ended the day "making" Christmas cookies and enjoying dinner. Tomorrow we'll do some crafts, make rice krispie treats, and decorate the tree. I can't wait to see his face in the morning when he sees a tree in his house :)

Looking sweet and innocent in the morning

Mama I don't fit!

This tree- this is the one Dada!
Alright folks, time to get home for dinner

The tree is set up and we'll wait on it to settle before decorating tomorrow
