To me it is not a cliche... Christmas is is really the best time of the year! I think I spend all year waiting for Christmas to arrive, is that magical feeling that only twinkly lights, the smell of the Christmas tree, the new Christmas pj's excitement, bows, presents, the smile and anticipation of children, and that perfect blue sky with a bit of cool air that give me this feeling of overjoy and coziness that I simply wish would not pass. We don't have white Christmases but I swear I almost see them white every time I hear the song "I'm wishing for a white Christmas"
Yesterday we officially started Christmas putting up our Christmas tree. It is Ari´s first conscious Christmas and she got into it like a pro helping out and behaving as a big girl. Emi was in charge of the music, and is of course the best DJ ever. Ale, even though is a great fan of our tree day, had this huge Christmas event to go to at school where schools compete in a Gaita competition (gaitas are our typical Christmas music, it is a type of salsa but merrier that we sing to and dance to only during this time of the year), so of course at almost 12 that plan beat our tree day by far! But to tell you the truth, I was really happy for her since it was her first gaita event, and that for us here is like the best thing you can do during Christmas and a big part of our tradition! Even better for her, since we decided not to go because going with a toddler is really more work than fun, Daniel, my 23 year old stepson, volunteered to take Ale, Thelma and a friend... so that was extra cool for them, because as they said... they were going to go in style!!
It surprised me that Ari was such a good helper and understood that all the ornaments were not toys, but were to be hung on the tree!
Ari sang like a thousand happy birthdays to the lights which she thought were candles at first!
Emi and Meche were the happiest helpers ever!!!!
and Ale and Mema..... Oh my.... don´t you wish you could stop time... like click it still for a while?
So there´s that! let the merry begin!
