It's begining to look a lot like Christmas

in our living room!
This is the first year we have had a real honest-to-goodness Christmas Tree. We are in love. Though we don't love it nearly as much as little M loves it.
We went down to Valley and bought a tree from, what looks to us, like the only streetside tree vendor in Las Cruces.
We like roadside tree vendors and want to keep them in business.
How sad will it be when we can only get a Christmas Tree at a big box store?
Last night Omi and Opi's Christmas present package came. When Maja was helping me unload it she thought the presents looked like ornaments and wanted to put them on the tree. "Ornament" she would say as she pressed them into the tree branches.
And, we do have another stocking coming from Grandma for Elias.
On another note. A sure way to get Elias to stop crying is to read him a book, preferably with very vivid pictures, like this one;
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?
