Christmas is much more entertaining with a 3.5 year old!

Other highlights…

She occasionally will say she’s getting presents for Halloween instead of Christmas.

We finally made a paper chain to show how many days before Christmas, because she was waking up every morning and asking if it was Christmas yet.

She was/is SO excited about the Christmas tree. She loved picking it out, decorating it, looking at it, etc.

She tells me every morning she woke up in the middle of the night and heard the elf flying back to Santa.

She calls Juan the elf “Pinocchio” most of the time.

This morning, I warned her that Juan the elf was watching her…she turned around, saw him, and said, “But he’s still smiling!”

We went to Target yesterday, and my mom came to scope out gifts. She and Carlyn went to the car afterwards while I bought presents for grandparents, and when I came back out, I handed them off to Mom and retrieved Carlyn. When I was putting Carlyn in the car after my mom drove off, she said, “I know you just went and got Ariel.” I insisted I didn’t (I really didn’t!), but she didn’t believe me. Mom swears they didn’t talk about anything I was doing while I was in the store.

She keeps us on our toes, that’s for sure! I can only imagine what it’s going to be like when her sister is joining in on all the fun!
