The boys have been brimming over with exciting all day long and tonight Carson was about to burst. We spent the evening at my parents with Grandma Helen and Papaw Wes. It was relaxing and certainly filling to say the least. The food was yummy and I can't wait to go back tomorrow for more holiday goodness. Once we brought the boys home Carson got straight to work teaching Eli all of the proper traditions of Christmas Eve.
1.) Get the cookies out for Santa.
2.) Get the carrots out for Santa's reindeer.
3.) Get the special Christmas plate out to put them on.
4.) Get the extra special mug for Santa's milk.
5.) Fill it with white milk this year (last year was chocolate...we must have grown up in our tastes this year!).
6.) Get to work composing the all important letter to Santa.
This year my baby, my first born, my Carson wanted to WRITE his own Santa letter. BY HIMSELF!!!! When did my baby grow up into a writing, spelling, articulate CHILD????
I am a proud but shocked mommy and one of my mommy jobs has been officially taken over by my very capable 4.5 year old boy. What a moment.
