Ethan has been so good on not sneaking in a look on his Christmas presents. Eric and I on the other hand have been horrible and we cannot wait. As soon as we get a box in, Ethan is good about placing all the gifts under the tree and walking away. Whereas Eric and I try to guess what it is before we have to put it away. I tell Ethan that we are going to open them soon but since I have been saying that for a while I think he is set on that those are permanent fixtures in our house. I think now that Ethan is older this year; he is going to get into the unwrapping of gifts. Last year, he would unwrap and just want to play with that toy but I think he will just go nuts and start ripping everything.
I am looking forward to the after Christmas shopping. I do not get into big crowds and never go the day after Thanksgiving but I really need more Christmas decorations. This will be the best time to get them at great prices. I have always wanted to go shopping after Christmas but every year we are visiting family and I can’t go nuts. Therefore, since I will be here for Christmas I am taking full advantage of it.
Well we are less than two months away from our little one arriving and she is just as active as ever. Lately, I will get a jab from an elbow or some bulging from either her head or her butt. She is running out of room and I am uncomfortable no matter what I do. Standing, laying down, sitting, it all does not matter anymore. With Ethan, I never got a Braxton Hick contraction but had tons of heartburn. Now I get about 4-5 Braxton Hicks contractions a day and I have tons of indigestion, not heartburn. Lately, I have been busy just trying to get prepared for her. I have washed her clothes, had to go searching for the packed up bottles, and Eric found the bassinet for me. I have a couple more things to do but I think we are ready.

With only 10 more days until Christmas, Ethan needed to give Santa his Christmas list. What a better way to do it then to go on a train ride to the North Pole to visit Santa and Mrs. Claus themselves. The train itself was built in the 1930’s so unfortunately there was no heat but seeing how it only took us an hour, to get to and from the North Pole, it wasn’t to bad. Thankfully,

It has been a very busy week for us. Eric went to
As soon as Eric got back, we got started on the Christmas decorations. At first, Eric and I kept trying to convince each other that we really didn’t need to put up a tree. Our Christmas spirits are a bit dampened because we are not going to be able to see family this Christmas. Eric will be too busy trying to finish his thesis. However, the sight of seeing Ethan on Christmas morning without a tree made us sad. Lazy Scrooges!
He is taking the job serious. He better because next year someone else may want to put the star on.
