tree Her little face!

Tonight my grandaughter (age 22 months) seen my Christmas tree for the first time.
The look on her face was so priceless, it was so adorable. She said "Wow, prettty" and went running over to it with her little index finger extended and touched some ornaments.


Later we all were sitting at the table having coffee and I kept hearing a swishing sound that told me something was playing with some ornaments and since I don't have a cat, I knew it was my precious grandaughter (she doesn't realize that sound travels). Her older brother went looking for her and sure enough she was behind the tree.

But she didn't do too bad tonight. She listened when we told her not to touch (sometimes), LOL, but she's so sweet and precious and more important to me than my tree.
I just don't want her to get hurt by breaking something and cutting herself, so we will be keeping a close eye on our little sweetie pie when she's near the tree.

Oh I forgot, when my son-in-law seen the tree he announced it's too early to have it up. My daughter and her older kids replied, "No it's not". I have to smile to myself for I think some of my Christmas spirit is rubbing off on my daughter and grandchildren. And I know my son-in-law will be putting the outside lights up at their home soon.

I don't think there's anything much better than remembering the looks on their little faces when they saw the Christmas tree for the first time!

That is what Christmas is all about. The innocence of children. Now you have your own little elf and all the Christmas excitement will be hers. And you didn't take any pictures?
