Its December and Christmas is coming. Eleni is so much more excited this year, she's understanding so much more and sh's already to recive those birthday presents Jesus gives on his Birthday. She also gets its Santas day too so what he brings is a bonus (love it). We talk aboit different santa's and Saint Nicholas and she laps it up. I get how kids believe everything at this age so we're trying to inject as much realism without ruining the magic that we can. She is loving it all not to mention all the Christmas movies!!!!
We've also decorated our Christmas tree, it's covered in home made decorations ala Jen & Eleni which are pretty cool.
After the tree was done we went sledding and have been a couple more times since. Montreal copped over 30cm of snow in a snow storm on Monday, and its stayed cold enough for it to hang around for us to play with. The bottom of the mountain was set up for kids to sled down with hay bails to catch flying objects!! It was great fun, we tired out Eleni long before we were ready to go home, well more before Marty was ready, what a big kid, I think he is definitely adjusting to the whole snow thing. I'm beginning to think he was born in the wrong hemisphere..
To add to the festive spirit we were given an authentic Austrian gingerbread house (well made by an Austrian friend, which we've decorated and we now have its lovely aroma in our living room, combined with the tree and the trillions of cookies everything smells fantastic.
We're also busy preparing for our trip to Baltimore for Christmas. It will be great to see how Christmas is done in winter and we're looking forward to checking a few American style lit homes.
So if we don't have the chance to tell you personally, Merry Christmas (et Joyeaux Noel) to you all have a blessed time!
