Yepp. I did it.

I put up Christmas decorations in November, and I'm not even ashamed to admit it. The last few weeks Jasper has gotten SO excited for Christmas. Whenever he sees Christmas lights on Trees he get's all giddy and shrieks "look mamma Tismas, Tismas" so I figured why not.

Saturday morning Santa arrived at our mall and they had Breakfast w/ Santa. Cutest idea Ever! Jasper was first in line went Santa walked by and he reached down and gave J a huge hug and said nice to see you again. Of course I was snapping away taking a dozen pictures. The way jasper's face lit up when Santa talked to him was priceless. Then I realize my memory card wasn't in my camera. And I wanted to cry. And throw up. I feel sick even thinking about it. Mommy fail.

I found my extra memory card in the camera bag- but still, the moment was gone.

We went on to enjoy our morning, had our breakfast with santa and then came home to put up our little tree. It might be time to buy a bigger tree- but since we are never even in the state of CO for Christmas it seems silly to do. And he does get to see/decorate big trees at both his grandparents houses in December. This year (after buying our yearly one ornament that we all pick out) we had enough to fill our tree that we didn't even need to put up the ugly red and gold balls that we have! Yaaay.

Every morning Jasper runs out to check on his tree- he could Not be more excited about it. And everyone who comes to our home is shown his tree, while he points out all the ornaments that are HIS. I'm so excited we started this tradition when he was just 4 months old. Priceless.


  1. I can't wait to put up our stuff! I think we are going to start this weekend. I love how excited Jasper is for his ornaments!

  2. I am counting down till next friday! I cannot wait to pick up our tree and put everything up! Your way ahead of me I am jealous!

  3. That is so cute! I'm putting my Christmas stuff early too - it makes me happy so why not? :)
