We are counting down to Christmas with our advent calender and in our family we have an activity and a piece of chocolate every day at the time mom, me, appoints :) And the other night the activity was 'watch The Grinch as a family,' the day before that we read The Grinch who stole Christmas. SO anyways, it lead to this impromptu photo shoot with Gunner in his 'super hero,' red long johns. He was asking me about Christmas, the baby Jesus, and all the Christmas stories we've been reading. Anyways, I had a lot of fun taking these pictures, it brings back the first stirrings I have in my mind about Christmas and all it's wonder: the big BRIGHT lights surrounded by the darkness of our Christmas tree, family outings, sugar cookies, and noisy malls. I just love the impression Christmas left on me when I was a kid, the memories never fade.
