Hide and Seek

When I noticed the linen closet in my bathroom didn't have any towels, I ran to the other one to grab one for my shower. I had left Ashton on the floor of my bedroom, and when I came back I couldn't see him. After walking into the bathroom I noticed a tiny foot sticking out of the closet that I had left open. I guess he found a new place to play and hide. He enjoys pulling himself up to everything. He especially likes opening up drawers and peeKing inside to see what he can pull out. Yes we have bought child locks for the cupboards and drawers, just haven't installed them yet.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...

It truly feels like Christmastime now. Since Thanksgiving, we have slowly turned the house into decorating central with a nativity here, and a Santa Clause there, but now the tree completes it all. It was fun watching Ashton's reaction to the bright lights and shiny ornaments. Notice his "touchdown" stocking in the top picture. Tommy and I have such great holiday memories from growing up- decorating trees and gingerbread houses, shopping and wrapping gifts, keeping secret Santa gifts secret, and just being together around this special time of year. I hope that we can make the same memories for our family, and instill in our kid(s) the true spirit of Christmas.
