Christmas-y Happenings

This past Sunday Derek and I went Christmas shopping for Wyatt!  It was so much fun.

But first, some pictures of Wyatt all bundled up.  It’s finally been cold enough to break out his coat (instead of just his sweatshirts), and I think he’s the cutest little bundled up baby I’ve ever seen.  This was on Saturday.

See what I mean?

Anyway, on Sunday Derek and I finished the rest of our Christmas shopping (well, he has a little more shopping to do for me, but I’m done).  It was very productive.

The part that was the most fun was shopping for Wyatt though!  This was his first trip to Toys R Us.  I know he doesn’t really know what’s going on with Christmas this year, but this turns out to be kind of nice when Christmas shopping for him.  He was definitely checking out the toys on the shelf though.  I could tell.

Have I mentioned how few toys this baby has?  He’s got a few stuffed animals, blocks, and a ball, and he’s pretty bored with all of those.  He has so much fun at his grandparent’s house, because they have better toys than we do.  I’m thinking he’ll like having more interesting things to play with after Christmas.

When we got home we finally opened a Christmas package that Wyatt got from his aunt and uncle, and we found out it was an advent calendar!  My brother and sister-in-law teamed up together and made this.

I was so excited (even though it was supposed to be for Wyatt), because I was thinking of getting an advent calendar and now we have a really special one!  So we caught up on all of the days that we missed, and we’re planning on opening a jar each evening together. 

Of course, Jeff and Rae made sure there was candy in each jar, so Derek and I have been enjoying that!  We’ll restock it next year for Wyatt.  I love that we have a new tradition to start as a family this year.

Oh gosh, he does look cute all bundled up! I take Liam shopping with me too - I will even hand him toys and if he seems interested it goes in the cart. If not then its back on the shelf! Might as well do it while we can :)

And I love the advent calendar! We just started that tradition this year too!

Love your advent calendar, your family did an amazing job, and going to try and recreate that for next year! I made ours this year, and C understands that every evening he gets to reach in for a treat, a candy or toy, but doesn't understand the "why" yet of course.

Your Wyatt sure is a cutie all bundled up!
