Christmas preparations

This was our first year to go and see Santa. Jackson was so excited. After telling me for 2 weeks he was going to ask for a tricycle, that morning he changed his mind to 4 lollipops.
This is the first year I've really gotten excited about Christmas for Jackson. It's exhilerating to try to shop around for him and hide gifts and such. We've also been talking about the nativity story. He wants to get down the manger scenes to talk about them...unfortunately we have breakable nativities and so I can't just leave them down but hopefully after christmas is over i'll get the little people's nativity for next year.
Another fun story was for our ward christmas party Brent and I were asked to be Mary and Joseph. We thought it would be fun to dress Jackson up as a donkey to walk in with us. He was so cute and then got up to the front and yelled "I'm superman!" Sorry mom, no pictures.

So cute that your little donkey has a voice!

Yes, FOUR lollipops are way better than ONE tricycle! If only we could be so content...

Oh that is too cute. I couldn't get Drew to go see Santa, a little timid I guess like his momma. I have come a long way though. Yes, the little people nativity is worth every penny. I bought one last year and my kids play with it every day. Merry Christmas!!!
