I figured this would be an apropos post to put the kids' pictures up with. It's snowing here, just started about 45 minutes really is quite pretty. I love the snow. Always have, hopefully always will. I've tried to instill that in the boy. Just as I've tried to instill my undying devotion to Christmas in him, as well. Well, the husband got up and went to work today and the boy came in and laid in bed with me- he's sick...sounds like a 78 year old man who has been smoking for 60 of those years! (The combination of the snow and our sick boy changes all of our plans for today and rules out a party with friends!) ANYWAY, the boy got out of bed and was looking out the window and said, "Mommy, it's snowing."
In my half asleep state, I sort of just yessed him. Then he said it again and added more emphasis, "Mommy, it's REALLY snowing!"
I rolled over to peek out the window and there they were, already starting to coat the mix of weeds and dead plants on the rock wall in our backyard, the tiny little white flakes that signal the beginning of real winter. "Yes, sweetie it's snowing. Isn't it nice?"
The boy looked at me with tons of wonderment and excitement in his eyes, "It's Christmastime now, isn't it mommy?" What a great association!
"Well, it's not Christmas yet, we have to have Thanksgiving still. But it's coming."
"No, mommy, it's Christmas. We have to put up the Christmas tree now, ok?"
"Weeeeellllll, you'll get no argument here but maybe we should discuss it with Daddy since he's the one who has to pull everything out of the hole under the steps."
"Ok, Mommy, let's call Daddy. It's Christmastime."
How can you resist that!?! I only wish I had videotaped it so that the husband could see the cuteness and excitement and really get the urge to take all the Christmas stuff out!

Here they are but for those of you who know me in "real life" don't'll get one or a few in your Christmas card! ;)
