You're a Mean one Mr Grinch..

Merry Christmas

This year was a quiet celebration at home focused on Ben. He received several books - ALL of which he insisted we read the minute he opened them. Hmmph - second guessing Green Eggs and Ham. He was also the recipient of some great games - which we played over and over tonight. (There's not much to Candy Land is there? Sequence for kids isn't bad...) His favorite toy is his pedal train. So much that he took it too his room, wrapped it in covers, and laid down next to it like he was going to nap with it.

A few things leading up to Christmas that happened in the life of Ben:
1. He found out he LOVES to wrap gifts. When I ran out of gifts for him to help wrap, he found a car of his and wrapped it all by himself, put it under the tree, and said it was for Jacob.
2. This past week if we sat down for a bit to watch the boob tube.. Ben wanted to watch Charlie Brown's Christmas... sometimes DVRs a beautiful thing.. but I honestly believe that when the child starts reciting the lines b/f they are said on the show.. it's probably time to delete.. (he only watched it maybe 3 times)..
3. He shocked us.. when Pete started singing - "You're a Mean one.. " and ben finished the lyrics! YAY (my favorite holiday show)


winner..



He couldn't believe it was empty already
