This week Andy got to go to the library and see Santa Claus. There is a great guy here who makes these wooden toys and brings them for the kids every year. This year he made a beautiful rocking horse. Andy was so excited to meet Santa. On the way to the library, I was feeling very festive, so I was singing all sorts of Christmas songs (I'm turning into my mom!) I asked Andy which song he'd like me to sing next, and he told me "That's pretty much enough singing." I can't really blame him- I'm not much of a singer! Friday we went with my mom and did our Sub for Santa shopping. It was so much fun. We picked a boy Andy's age so he could get excited about picking things out. Andy really wanted to know what the little boy's name was, so finally we told him his name was "Bob". He had a great time picking out toys for Bob, and now he really wants to meet this boy and be his friend. He was such a good boy about it - I was surprised that a three year old could go toy shopping all day and not complain that none of it was for him. We also bought things for a large family here who needed some help, so we had a great day - my mom and i decided that just that day made our whole Christmas. Today we picked out our Christmas tree. Sadly, Kevin had to work, but my dad took us and Andy picked out a cute little Alaskan style tree. I can't wait to decorate it!
