Charlie’s Christmas List

Hey y’all! Just wanted to show you Charlie’s Christmas list. He wrote and illustrated this whole thing all by himself.) The funniest thing to me was that Charlie wanted “sticks” and “dirt” for Christmas. He is such a boy! Hey, in this economy, I think Santa can still do sticks and dirt. I can’t wait for next year. He’ll probably ask for warty frogs and slimy snakes. scan0002

Milk And Cookies With Santa

Tonight, Charlie and I had lots of fun by going to the LaGrange Mall to have milk and cookies with Santa. Charlie had a great time. And it was sort of a big biy milestone for him because, for the first time, he let Santa pick him up (and be happy about it!). Once we got there, we could sit anywhere with an open seat. Then, the nice staff came by and gave each kid a glass of milk and three cookies. I would like to note that the cookies were really good- I had to taste them and make sure they were okay for Charlie to eat. 😉 Then, Santa made a grand appearance and stopped by each table and had his picture made with each child. After that, he read “Twas The Night Before Christmas” to all the children. Without further ado, here’s some pictures of Charlie’s experience at Milk and Cookies With Santa:

Yummy!

Charlie’s Super-Duper Christmas Carol Singing Bonanza

Hey yall! Charlie wanted to send you some special Christmas carols. Enjoy, and have a merry Christmas!

Excellent!

It’s really fun having a 2 1/2 year old at Christmas. It’s really fun having a 2 1/2 year old, period. We’ve been decorating our house for Christmas, and Charlie has done a little decorating of his own. Charlie is a big fan of the movie Cars, and he also love stickers. He combined his love for stickers, Cars, and baby Jesus a couple of nights ago. I was walking by one of Charlie’s manger scenes, and discovered he had decorated it with Cars stickers. My favorite part is that he had placed a big sticker that said EXECELLENT on top top of baby Jesus. I think he was trying to quote Phil. 4:8- “If anything is excellent, think about such things.” Amen Charlie! Jesus is excellent indeed. 🙂
