It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

The holiday season is upon us and I am so happy! We have waited so long to experience Christmas with a child and we're enjoying every minute!

Santa's little helper
Daddy and Gram-Gram went to buy the Christmas trees on Friday night. After Nicolas went to sleep, Gram-Gram put the lights on the tree and this morning we had a magical moment when Nicolas woke up. Mommy turned on the Christmas lights and Daddy brought Nicolas into the livingroom. He was so very happy! 
Seeing the tree for the first time! Love that smile!

We put on Christmas music and decorated the tree! Mommy was enjoying every moment and I had to try not to think too much about what was happening or I would turn into a very happy blubbering mess.

Hanging the first decoration on the tree...a moose of course!

The other decorations Nicolas put on the tree...they're all laying on the branches in a bunch - Mommy left them there!
On Saturday, it was Gram-Gram's work party and we were all invited - Christmas is for kids afterall! Nicolas was so excited to see his cousins and his Toota's (Tito &Tita). Everyone was having fun eating and playing and then all of a sudden we heard Jingle Bells and we heard that a special visitor was arriving! When he arrived, everyone clapped and Nicolas was sitting on my lap clapping and saying over and over Santa! The moment was perfect and I was so happy seeing him happy that I started to cry...poor Nicolas looked up at me and was totally confused. I told him not to worry, that mommy was just very happy. We went to see Santa...but the litttle boy that was called before Nicolas started to cry because he didn't want to see Santa, so when it was our turn, Nicolas was nervous and not interested in sitting on Santa's lap.


Mommy better get lots of tissues for the holidays!
