Santa Photos 2016

It all started with a chocolate chip cookie…

Probably the best chocolate chip cookie Bennett had ever eaten in his short 19 months here on earth…

I mean… really?  Do you not see the jolly man in the red suit behind you?!?

Yesterday we spent the morning decorating our first tree as a family of 3.  Or 5/6 including the mutts… I, personally, prefer real trees over faux, mostly because of the amazing smell they bring to the household, but the falling needles are having me second guess this rationalization.

B loves looking at the lights and touching the ornaments.  He tried really hard to open one of the presents under the tree, but was unsuccessful ha ha ha.  As I was decorating, I had the Christmas music blasting over the speakers and B could not stop laughing at my crazy dancing!  I think he is going to love Christmas as much as I do ;).  We can’t wait for this weekend, when Daddy can join us in finishing the final touches on the decorations!  It’s going to be a holly, jolly Christmas!

The weekend before Christmas we attended the Holiday Lighted Boat Parade which goes through the channels of downtown Tampa.  It was actually pretty cool!  I cannot wait to take Baby D next year!
