We haven't made it through my list of Christmas activities, but we have been able to share some wonderful memories together as a family. :)
One Saturday morning I left our house early to run errands and found this Mickey gingerbread house while I was shopping. I was SO excited to show this to Henry as Mickey is the top thing in his life right now! Henry had a great time eating the Mickey candy while I rushed to get it completed. Ha! However, he loves it so much now. Henry loves to sit on the counter and look at it and touch the candies on it. This was definitely a sweet memory that I loved sharing with him.
My MIL always gives us Christmas ornaments each year. I love this tradition and she does such a great job of finding great ornaments for us. This year Henry got a Mickey ornament (what else!) and very rarely leaves it on the tree. He is normally carrying it around with him. I can't tell you how many kisses I've had to give to Mickey this year!
Because it has been so cold here lately, we have had a fire in our fireplace almost every night. I knew we would get a lot of use out of our fireplace, but I didn't realize how much we would all love it! Henry loves the fire, but does a great job of not getting too close to it. One night we watched Christmas Vacation and ate pizza. Henry had to watch it from his car--just like a drive-in theater. Isn't he hilarious?
With Christmas just under a week away, I am still hoping to get in a few other activities like going to see Christmas lights and making handprint salt ornaments. Now that we are all feeling better, I am hoping this happens this weekend!
