He loves snow and ice. Cold temperatures will NOT stop him from asking to go outside.
He requests Hot chocolate with marshmallows every single day and often requests to listen to the Polar Express "Hot Chocolate" song while we drink. I just ordered these children's mugs from World Market and I'm so excited to get them and use them all winter! (On sale now!)
Knows the characters of the Christmas story and can name them all (Mary, Joseph, The Wise Men, Shepherds, Angel, Baby Jesus, etc.) He is convinced Baby Jesus is sleeping on grass and not hay and sometimes he gets Baby Alder and Baby Jesus confused since those are the two babies we always talk about. Haha.
Every movie and song we listen to or watch MUST be Christmas related. He is OBSESSED with The Polar Express Soundtrack and knows a lot of the words to the songs. He also loves the Charlie Brown Soundtrack and dances around like the Peanuts characters in our kitchen.
Sweets and Treats 24/7...Gingerbread house making = candy face stuffing.
Loves ornaments and looking at lights.
When we talk about going to a Christmas party, he asks if there will be lights and jingle bells there.
He sat through a two hour church production of the Christmas story in complete awe and amazement.
When I put him in his bed at night and say "I love you" he responds (completely unprompted) with Merry Christmas!!!
I love this season so much already, but with a little one around, it is even more magical and sweet.
