Where are the Christmas Tree Ornaments?

Nana, look at the beautiful tree

I don't have anything in my bucket
I'm going to ride my horse now


Hope, are you touching the tree?

No Nana, I'm just looking with my hands

The star is very high Nana and I can't see it


I was thinking


You could take the star down and let Chuck E. Cheese go on top of the tree
Daddy said it was OK

Nana! look! I found Moose. He was sitting on the table


If I find all the tree things you'll put them back?
And everything will be OK?
Sounds good Nana

Merry Christmas Everybody

Good heavens she is too cute. One of the best things about Christmas is the kids. Thanks for the big smile this morning. Love this post. Merry Christmas to all of you.

Merry Christmas, Hope! You are looking with your hands, very creative... I wish you and your wonderful family the best of Christmases this year, and thank you for coming into my life! :-)

That was Di- lightful. Hope's smile made my day.."Looking with my hands." Wonderful. Merry Christmas. Big Hugs, j

Linda said...

There's nothing like some Christmas Hope to make the season merry and bright!

When a Christmas tree is so pretty it's hard not to look with one's hands, isn't it?

Merry Christmas to you and yours with best wishes that the gift of a wonderful coming New Year is somewhere under your beautiful tree!

'I'm just looking with my hands'

That's going into my book of excuses for sure.

And what exactly do you celebrate at your house? Chaquanmas?

Cherie said...

That tree looks so green and so wonderfully real. Must give off a great scent. I didn't know that they still made "real" Christmas trees. ;) And yes, I'll have to agree with the class, "Looking with my hands," is the winner. Merry Christmas to all! :)

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes! "looking with her hands"!! I love it! Explains a lot to me! I love all you shots of Hope! Just when I think she couldn't possibly get any more adorable, you post some new pics -- and sure enough, she did indeed get even more adorable! Wishing you both a most wonderful and beautiful Christmas, Dianne!


Gina said...

Such adorable pictures of HOPE...! She is growing up so fast...!


Linda Reeder said...

How wonderful to be able to experience the wonderment of Christmas through the eyes of a child again. That's what grandchildren do for us. They bring back the magic!

Granny Annie said...

A forever Christmas memory, "No Nana, I'm just looking with my hands". And, did you replace the star with the
Chuck-E-Cheese balloon? Wonderful post.

LL Cool Joe said...

Love the photos! She is damn cute! So smily.

Have a wonderful Christmas!

Ron said...

ADORABLE photos, Nana!

"Hope, are you touching the tree?

No Nana, I'm just looking with my hands."



Wishing you a faaaaaaaaabulous Christmas, dear lady!

Much X to you and Hope!

(((( You and Hope )))))

P.S. Love that last shot! What a sweetie pie!

Hilary said...

Hope, Hope, Hope.. how loveable you are! Give your Nana a big hug for me, please. Happy Holidays to all of you.

Jeni said...

Looks like the "looking with my hands" quote was definitely the big hit of this post! Loved it! Wishing you the best Christmas and lots of goodies from St. Nick! At our house, it's been "controlled chaos" and looks like we need to build on just to house the Christmas gifts this year. Kids are extremely happy though and that's the main thing, isn't it?

Ah, it would be so nice to see Christmas through the eyes of a grandchild. Maybe one of these years....

How sweet she is and so's funny but my husband always had a Christmas tree even though they are Jewish..I have to ask his Mother why....This Christmas was a do you spell that..anyway I wrote a poem to celebrate...errr...not to celebrate it....

HermanTurnip said...

"looking with my hands" is something our Tyler is *very* good at...unfortunately. It's funny how "no" means very little to 22-month-olds.

Hope you had a great Christmas, and that Hope got everything she wished for!

Ivanhoe said...
