We had quite the fun-filled morning! We got up and had a big pancake breakfast and headed out the door in search of our first Christmas tree! Last year we were in Boston with my parents so we didn’t do a tree here at home. We did make a quick pit stop to pick up some shatter-proof ornaments before we got the tree. Meanwhile in the back seat Maddie kept saying “Frosty, noman, noman!!” The Christmas tree stand in front of Tanglewood Mall has a huge “Frosty” out front that Maddie had been looking forward to seeing all morning. So of course we had to take our picture with him!
How big is Frosty? So big.
And then . . . the highlight of Maddie’s day, she saw a buddy from school. I said, “Maddie, who is that over there from school?” to which we quickly replied while pushing away to get down, “Jake!” Maddie loves her some Jake. They go to school together Tuesdays and Thursdays and she always tells me how she plays with him. She also stole my phone the other day and told me she was calling him! Of course we had to get a picture of the two of them with Frosty as well.
Yes, Jake is trying to hold her hand, so cute!
Also, awhile back when their class took a field trip to the pumpkin patch, these two buddied up. Pretty much Maddie tried to win him over by continuously feeding him goldfish. Smart girl!
. . . and it’s been Jake this and Jake that ever since.
Oh, and yes after these two played for thirty minutes or so we did manage to find a tree and get it home and set up successfully. Tomorrow we are hoping to decorate!
