Getting ready for Christmas

Our neighbors Matt and Angie, have Santa come to their house every year for the kids. It is kind of neat because Aiden has been able to sit on this same Santa's lap every year since he was born. Aiden has been so excited for Christmas, he couldn't wait to see Santa. As you can see here, he is pretty tickled!

This was Aiden's Christmas program at church. He did great. He sang and did all the movements to the songs. (Aiden is the little boy in the blue shirt leaning forward a little.)

We almost didn't get our Christmas decorations out this year because we just sold our house. Not good timing I know, with the holidays and a baby on the way. Our house wasn't even on the market, but Jim had some clients that were interested in a house like ours. So we decided to show it, thinking in this market it wouldn't sell. But sure enough, we got a full price offer on it, too good to pass up. So we are in the process of looking for a new home. There are so many good deals out there right now, hopefully we find a house that we love quickly. We have a temporary house to move into in the mean time. The thought of moving twice stresses me out a little, but I think it will be worth it in the end. Needless to say we did get out some of our Christmas decorations for Aiden.
The train track is defiantly Aiden's favorite Christmas decoration. We are constantly putting it back on the track, because he is always playing with it.
