Big Blue Nation suffered a big loss last week but Chippie is a true blue Wildcat fan! Go Cats!
Sorry although we were snowed in most of the weekend I didn’t make it over here to update the adventures of Chippie! Here is Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
Chippie had a family movie night planned and dressed the part as Buddy the Elf!
Keeping us updated on our countdown to Christmas!
The plan for Chippie tonight was to make an elf approved grocery list but we decided to make a last minute change! Last Christmas we left ok Christmas Day to go out of town and never set up our Christmas train. So we decided to set it up tonight and let Chippie play engineer! Maybe next year we will make him a conductor hat! Choo Choo!
This year as we put up our tree we had 5 sets of hands swiftly picking up treasured ornaments and lovingly finding the perfect spot for them on the tree. Each ornament a memento from a stage in one of our lives. However it never fails to surprise me that kids don’t understand leaving space or what putting all of the ornaments in in one spot will make it lean but the joy on their faces as their little fingers hooked and looped their treasures onto the branches I just couldn’t change it.
There will be a day when my tree will don matching ornaments and grand garland when my kids take the ornaments to their own homes someday. But this year and for the few short years to come our ornaments will be scattered, tree slightly leaning and practically empty on the bottom thanks to the baby and when I gaze at it, I will see it as perfect. Perfect because the hands that love put it that way.
