New Year New Me

Ok not quite. But I have now ventured into Let's Dish today with my friend. The great part about it is that I now have 16 meals sat in my freezer for the month. My little guy had a great Christmas and has a lot of new toys to play with. I have totally enjoyed staying at home with my little guy maybe a little too much. But I am placing thoughts of Monday far away. New Year will be quite for us.

For the new year however I have decided to take up a challenge of reading the bible in 90 days. I will be blogging about it and feel free to check it out a God's Challenge.

Where is Christmas?

For about a month now my little boy has every now and again been asking "Where is Christmas?" It all started because we went to a store to purchase a little people Nativity scene which we love to discover a veggie trains train. This little boy hung onto that train all the way around the store. It was on sale and so I decided that he could have it as one of his Christmas presents. So I told him he would have to wait for Christmas. When we got home his first look was for his train which I told home no you must wait for Christmas. And so we had the conversation of "Where is Christmas?" "Well Christmas is a day where we celebrate Jesus' birth and give gifts!" "oh" he then went and looked for Christmas all over the house. Since that point at the mention of Christmas my boy has looked for him around the house. Tomorrow we will meet Christmas and I cannot wait to watch as my little boy begins to understand that Christmas is an event. We are not really going to do Santa in our household. He will be talked about but the main focus will be the birth of Jesus and why that is so important.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Christmas is just around the corner. We gave up on the potty training as I got tired of cleaning the floor and my little guy just loved to pee on the floor. I am really looking forward to Christmas this year as my little guy is going to know what is going on. It is going to be great fun opening the presents and see his excited face. I have managed to get some great deals this season and so I have managed to spread the money and get him some great gifts. It is however amazing that I can never find a pair of scissors when I want them.

This little boy has got so much further in his language. We can have complete conversations and the other morning he said "Daddy why did you switch the light on when you know I am sleeping?" At times a truly forget he isn't yet three.

Time has been flying so fast. I am really looking forward to being at home with my little guy for over a week.
