Eli loves the ornaments on the Christmas tree. We have a collection of wooden ornaments from my childhood and some fun ones from Ben's, including an ornament of Sneezy from Snow White. Eli loves the Sneezy ornament and says, "AH choo!" when he finds it. Here's a clip of him checking out a few of his favorites. Lately he likes to say "hmmm" and sometimes puts his finger up to his chin when he's looking for something, which is pretty funny.
And this morning Ben gave me the best gift ever - there were a few inches of snow on the ground from yesterday/last night's snowfall. He shoveled the front and back of our house at 6 a.m. before leaving for work. I was so relieved not to face shoveling all of that snow when I woke up a little while later and thankful for my sweet husband! I realize shoveling that early in the morning is not high on his list, but it was thoughtful of him to get it done.
