Ariel really wants it to be Christmas already. We got her wishlist done online, which just delights her. She and Daddy are making some ornaments. And, of course, Christmas decorations are all over the stores already.

This is such a fun time of year for children. Fun for Mommy and Daddy to, really. Excited children, pretty lights, getting the tree decorated (but not yet, not with a toddler in the house!)… lots of fun is there to be had.

Ariel asks here and there if it’s Christmas yet. She really wants it to come. I’m waiting to see if this will be the year that she gets up as some absurd hour to start opening presents.
