The Peanuts Christmas Rocks ornaments.
Nicholas did pretty much the same thing choosing his ornament. He had Wolverine, then Batman, then Star Wars The Clone Wars (which I made him put back because it was $32.00!). He finally chose ...
Spiderman - Comic Book of Heroes.
The fact that we already have 2 other Spiderman ornaments on our tree from previous years didn't seem to phase him. :)
Keira, as usual, took the longest to pick her ornament. She's not as quick to choose as the boys. She likes to look the whole wall over ... once ... then twice ... then one more time just to make sure she didn't miss anything.
Finally she chose ...
Song of Peace.
Since she loves playing the violin, I wasn't at all surprised with her choice. But they had no boxes of this one on the shelf. So we asked the lady behind the counter if we could take the display, which took a few minutes.
Now if you've ever been in a Hallmark store, you know they have display upon display of very breakable things. So I was on hyper-alert with the boys, making sure they didn't accidentally break something. Thankfully they did not. Whew!
So we survived another tradition unscathed! :)
Tonight we will attend our church's Christmas play. Fingers crossed that the boys will behave and I will actually get to see the whole thing. :)
