a tree for christmas

 
 

This is the first year that Sam is truly excited for Christmas & Santa & the whole shebang.  So, over the past weekend, we excitedly packed up the car and went on a search for the most perfect Christmas tree.  or actually cheapest {although I'm pretty sure those two words are interchangeable...}.  After picking our tree, we headed over to the barn to drink some hot chocolate and meet the big man himself.  And while we may have been feeling a little too shy to sit on Santa's lap, we were still able to tell him that we wanted a Megatron and an Optimus Prime for Christmas and gladly accepted his candy cane.  Meeting Santa can really work up an appetite, so we settled down on a bench to eat some popcorn and our Santa candy cane.  Suddenly, we remembered that we had forgotten to tell Santa that we wanted a Darth Vader for Christmas too! *gasp!!*  I explained to Sam that we could write him a letter, but oh no, that simply would not do.  So we marched back over to Santa, hid behind mama's legs again, and told him that we needed a Darth Vader too.  Then we ate another candy cane, fed some pretty little goats and headed home to decorate our tree.  Unfortunately, Sam was unable to make it to the decorating of the tree, but lucky for us, Optimus Prime was able to help out.

  1. Sounds like having a little boy makes Christmas a lot more exciting! Hopefully Santa will get him his Optimus Prime and Darth Vader! ;)
