You'd think I would go all out for the Fourth, but it really isn't my holiday at all. Barely a blip on my holiday radar.
However, when July hits I have a legit excuse to listen to carols and watch my favorite Christmas movies.
I'd never actually done much on the 25th before, but I felt like it would be a hoot to festive ourselves up for the day this year.
Aria had precisely zero problems with that.
Then we dragged out the ceramic Christmas tree and Aria helped me put the whole thing together. I was pretty impressed because you put tiny holly leaves in each little hole then put even tinier berries in the leaf holes. We did this before anybody else woke up for the day so when Chris and great grandma woke up she proudly told them that she put the Christmas tree up 'all by herself' before adding in 'with mommy'.
For breakfast we had cinnamon rolls - from the store. I thought about making some with Aria but then decided to save that kind of ambition for the serious holidays.
I pulled down almost all of our Christmas books and the FP North Pole Cottage, well technically Chris got the FP down. So we played elves and read the day away.
At the end of the day Aria helped me put away all of the Christmas and she's been wondering when we get to do Christmas again ever since. That's my girl.
