Thanks for this idea from our friend Mark, we had a Holiday Book tree. His was less book and more ornaments, but we all work with what we have.
I enjoyed them a lot. SuperGirl was in charge of lights and there were plenty. WonderBoy didn't get the whole lights thing, but sitting next to SuperGirl in the back seat, he knew to say "Look, Mommy, look," until he got a response from me. I'm pretty sure he wasn't looking at anything, but knew if it was dark and there were lights, that's what one says to his Mommy.
And then there were the annual Nutcrackers. We browsed the nutcrackers everywhere we went. SuperGirl knows that they are expensive (and frankly, they were less expensive than last year, but still not dirt cheap, at least at our local Target). The first time we were in Target after Christmas, she said, "Is it time? Can we get a Nutcracker?" Of course, I replied, heading for the crowded after-Christmas sale aisle. We looked and looked, only to find that there were only three left and they were gone by the time we got there. I distracted SuperGirl with something and we left and I was worried. Could they have ALL sold out? We're lucky that we have three targets 'fairly close to me' as Siri would say.
So we headed to the next one, me hoping that there was something left she would like. When we arrived, I wondered why I worried....... at 70% off, we found several she liked. Phew. Disaster averted.
