I share all this because Liam and I officially kicked off the holiday season together today. We went to Santa's Arrival Dance Party at a local mall. The perfect way to kick off the holiday season for me...watching Liam's excitement build and his eyes grow wide as Santa arrived. He never did dance with all the other kids (he is quite shy in crowds and around people he doesn't know), but he was excited about seeing Santa. It was a long wait, but it was worth it!
Here are a few more shots from our visit...
On the way home, we sang Santa Clause is Coming to Town. Liam said he loved Santa. Then, he sighed real big and said in a drowsy voice, "I'm tired". Then shortly after that, "Memere, I love you" (Memere is French for grandma, when he says it, it sounds like MeyMey). I am so appreciative that he is such a loving boy, very willing to share and communicate his love...very special indeed!
Memories for a lifetime!
On a separate topic but funny enough to share...last night at dinner..."Liam, would you like ground beef with your mac-n-cheese?" There is a little pause, then Liam says "Memere what animal does it come from?"...I say "cow". Liam gets a funny face on and says, "I don't want to eat a cow". It made me laugh, but I've been thinking about it ever since...interesting what children think about!
PS...I do realize how late I am publishing this, it's been a long day for me too, but I've enjoyed every second of it!
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
