Yesterday I took Samuel with me to run a couple errands. As we were leaving the grocery store, he hollered out quite excitedly, "I see Merry Christmas!"
I looked around to find what it was that led to his excitement. He was looking at a woman wearing a Santa hat. She heard him and responded, "That's the way it should be, huh?"
I keep thinking about Samuel's statement and his enthusiasm for Christmas. He's choosing to see Merry Christmas...in Frosty the Snowman, the Christmas tree, the nativity scene, and Santa Claus.
So today we're off to the mall to go see Santa. I have low expectations that either Samuel or Lauren will sit in Santa's lap so I can snap a few photos, but a mama can always hope right?
Next year seeing Merry Christmas might not come so easily to Samue. So today I'm treasuring that my son sees Merry Christmas everywhere around him.
