Day 2: Ornament Shopping and The Christmas Mouse

Tonight, my sister took her three grand kids and my son to Ace Hardware so they could each pick out a special Christmas ornament. Every year, I have chosen a special ornament for my son, but this year marks the start of a new tradition:

Some hot cocoa and balloons after shopping:

When we got home, he placed his ornament on the little tree on his side of the bed. It holds special meaning this year because it has a doggie on a Christmas bell that looks like our Saint. This will be our first Christmas without our boy:

After the excitement of hanging our ornament, it was late, so we chose a short board book, The Christmas Mouse:

Even though these activities are meant to slow down the holiday season, some nights require a quick read, so we have a few of these little board books on hand :-)
