Until Next Year "Oh Oh" and "No-Man"

It is hard to believe that this our third Christmas with Jackson. He made the holidays extra special this year. Our neighbor put up an inflatable snowman right after Thanksgiving. I think it would be accurate to say that Jackson and that Santa had a love a first sight relationship. Each night we drove by he would cry until we figured out he wanted us to stop and see the Santa for a second. After he made his sweet pouty face & talked his Daddy into taking him down the street in his pajamas to see Santa we decided to get one for our yard. We settled on a small inflatable snowman and Santa and some lights for the yard. I am so glad we put up the decorations. They became part of our daily routine during the holidays. Each morning Jackson would ask about "Oh, Oh" and "No-man" He would also want to introduce them to everyone that came to our house. He loved them so much that he cried for hours one night as he feared for their safety when he heard a clap of thunder (which he thought was the Abominable Snowman). Needless to say we were very anxious about how he would take their departure when Christmas came to an end. We cautiously took him outside and had him give hugs and say good bye. He still brings them up all of the time, but is handling it pretty well. So, when Thanksgiving comes around next year we will be eagerly awaiting the arrival of our new holiday guests!

This is Jackson telling about what happens when Daddy plugs them in
( he would hold up his and and say poof!)
