We love the holidays around here. In fact we put the decorations up as soon as we can and are quite poky about putting them away.
Isabelle cried when we put the Halloween decor back into storage, so I knew Christmas was going to be heaven for her.
Alas we need the toddler gate as her fascination much akin
to the curiosity of a cat, and leads to an equal amount mischief.
Her favorite part of the decorations?
A Dora or "D" ornament
that we had a couple years before her...not sure why we have it, but it gives this little girl a never ending supply of joy to point to the Christmas tree and shout "D".
Her other favorite was trying to eat the "snow" for the Christmas village. Eerily similar to her Daddy's favorite part in the holiday movie "Elf" when Will Ferrell's character munches on cotton balls.
