Tis the season
Colton went to his first Christmas party last night. Our church had their get-together at the rectory last night. He was the only little kid there. To be honest though, he is one of maybe 5 kids in the entire church. Most of the people who attend are in their 50s and 60s I would say so all their kids have grown up!! He did all right. All he wanted to do was walk around and "show-off". He is always such a big hit at church. He goes into the nursery during church, but comes back in for communion and to be blessed. We didn't stay long, just about 30-45 minutes. It was from 6-8 and his bedtime is generally 7:15-7:30 so we left about 7:15. He went right to sleep when we got home though. For the Christmas Eve service there is no nursery so he will be in church the entire time. Hopefully he will make through. I lost him down the pew last Sunday and yesterday he kept saying "my mama" during the service. Maybe with all the singing he will do all right. It will be a busy end to the week. I can't wait for Christmas to get here. I want to see how he will react to the presents under the tree. Right now he leaves the tree alone, but there aren't any gifts under it yet.
