Pictures of Chico have been missing from this blog a bit lately. He's still around and cute as ever. Here's some proof:
Funny story: Randomly one day Chico walked up to one of the ornaments on the tree and was looking at his reflection and he said in his most adorable voice, "Hello."
Wish I could have caught it on video. Maybe I can get him to do it again... he's seen me re-enact it for people enough that he's jokingly done it a few times since then.
"Mitey Mouse" as Chico says it. He loves going upstairs and watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Seeing Mickey at stores... on sweaters... on his nightlight... it just brings him joy.
We've been doing some fun things this season but my list and plan I had is getting thwarted by sickness! We all (yes, all four of us) have a nasty cold. Last weekend's plans had to be changed and if we're not better by Friday I'll be very put out. Anyway, we're still having fun though. We're reading this book: The Christmas Chronicles by Tim Slover. They played it on Classical 89 last year and they are doing it again this year. We listened to it last year and loved it so much that we decided to buy our own copy. It's kinda like the biography of Santa Claus. It's fun to read. You can listen to the episodes here. I kinda wish we had bought the audio version, he reads it much better than me and my voice is getting tired.
I don't have a picture of our Christmas tree in it's entirety yet, still have to make a popcorn chain with Brent and then it will be done. We were given this tree when my grandparent's moved into a retirement center. It's big and beautiful. Maybe someday we'll buy real trees, but for now this is fun.
The other day Brent's co-worker let him borrow his macro lens. He brought it home and we had fun playing with it. I gotta get me one of those! They're fun! With it I took pictures of our special ornaments that Brent's mom gives to the kids on their first Christmas.
