Many signs have been appearing lately that Christmas is just around the corner. Including the songs we are practicing for the Children's Christmas Pageant, the stores are decked out and the annual onslaught of catalogs and commercials have begun. Aidan, being 4 1/2, is not immune to the "I want. . ." infection. I am hoping to show a little more restraint this year, keeping in mind the mind numbed look that came over my dear sons face about half way through Christmas morning.
In the meantime, we (the parents) and Santa wanted to find out what Aidan would like this year. So, the Target toy catalog was discreetly left out along with the latest Sponge Bob Square Pants pen. This is the scene I came upon on Saturday morning. . .
And so it's official, we're getting ready to get ready. . .
