And is there not something totally darling about a toddler and a Christmas tree… decorated one day and well not so much the next!!! But so worth watching his wonder!!! And those little podgy hands reaching for all that is shiny and interesting!!!
DSC_0948I have the knack of hiding gifts around the house, in plain view… So well in fact that I discovered our forgotten easter eggs…

At least one of us was overjoyed!!!

And this little one woke up in the night and interrupted our gift wrapping session, we never said a word about it and it took a while for her torealize that the lounge was not as it usually is… and then her eyes literally popped out on stalks before she went back to bed… Next morning: “Did you notice anything when you woke up in the night?”… “Yes, there were lots of stars.” !!!
