Christmas Decorations

This weekend we set up our Christmas decorations. We set up the tree while Branden was sleeping so when he came downstairs he was pretty excited to see a tree in the house, he still gets pretty excited everytime he sees it. He helped decorate the tree. His favorite ornaments are the stars and a glass snowman. He is really good with just looking at the ornaments and not touching. It did take all Saturday to decorate, so I think we will keep our Christmas stuff up for awhile because it is so much work.

We have been reading a lot of Christmas books to Branden lately and telling him about Santa. He knows who he is when we point to a picture of him, but he still doesn't understand the whole Christmas thing. Next year will be the most exciting I think.

Branden and I started to make some Christmas cookies today until my mixer blew-up and there was smoke everywhere! Branden said "All Done!" I said, "Yep, it looks like we are all done." Who knows what happened to that thing, it was pretty old. So it is sitting out side now.

Branden is getting so big and so smart. He loves cars and motorcycles. He could play with his toy cars and motorcycles forever. Branden can count to 5 now and can sort of count to 10, but you have to say 7 and then he will say 8. His favorite songs are "Twinkle, Twinkle" and "The Muffin Man" and whenever that song is on he has to be eating a muffin...he is so silly.

Well, thats all for now.

Hi Sara,

I finally went to your blog. Branden looks and seems so much older now! I miss him so much! Give him a hug and kiss from Auntie.
