Today we started getting my parents house ready for Christmas. We bought our tree, and it looks great! We think it is close to 9 feet. Tomorrow we will be decorating it. Then we went to the house and made Christmas cookies. Raul wasn't too interested, but I got him to help with a couple cookies. Other than one tantrum about wanting to go upstairs, he did great, and mostly played with his trucks and the iPad. We had homemade pizza for dinner, then headed home as it was after Raul's bedtime and he was starting to get sleepy. It was fun to drive home at night and see all the lights!
