We went to get our Christmas tree this morning. The weather is still beautiful…but it was very foggy. Nathan and I unfortunately made some big parenting mistakes. It seems like that happens all too often. We knew Elias would want to walk around, but he only has one pair of shoes and I didn’t want them to get trashed in the mud. So we decided he should wear his mocassins because we don’t care if those get muddy. Bad decision. His feet got wet and freezing so we had to go back to the car to put on fresh socks and his real shoes (which didn’t actually get that muddy). Mistake number 2 was forgetting his mittens…which we also fixed when we went to get his shoes.
Overall Elias had tons of fun walking around and interacting with his Uncles and grandparents. He got to see some cows and calves up close…and even hear some real moooooing. I can’t wait to see how he reacts to having the tree in the house later tonight!
