Last weekend we got out our Christmas decorations, or I should say what we have with us. Between all of our moving we seem to be missing a bit of our decorations. We're hoping they got left in storage back in the states, thankfully we think it was only some cheap decorations and the lights which would be the wrong voltage for here anyway. I had the joy of trying to find new Christmas lights here. I wasn't exactly sure where to start looking but ended up a grocery store that also has a lot of other stuff in it. After walking through the Christmas isles over and over I finally found someone who spoke enough English to understand what I was looking for. He points out a tiny tiny box, I thought he must be kidding. Sure enough inside the box was a small strand of lights. Beggers can't be choosy sooo... each strand of lights went around the tree twice, barely. Also, the lights don't plug into each other so for each strand needs it's own outlet.
Keenan liked the idea of putting decorations on the tree, then immediately taking them off. A week later the bottom part of our tree is pretty bare. So far he could care less about the wrapped presents under the tree, he just wants to pull of all the decorations.
Last weekend we also went to a large market that had lots and lots of kid and baby stores all together in one location. We walked into one of the toy stores, Keenan immediately wanted down to check everything out. I think he was in shock at first because he just stood there with his eyes wide open. He would reach his arm out to touch something but then he would see something else and go for it. He mostly wanted to play on the riding toys. We felt it would have been a little harsh to walk out of there empty handed so we ended up with a rather large pop-up tent and tunnel toy for Keenan to crawl through. It was a big hit when we got it all set up in the living room. Our apartment felt so large when we first moved in, now with all of Keenan's toys its starting to feel smaller and smaller.
I think Eric was trying to make Keenan sit still so he could play with our new camera's settings. I don't think Keenan looks to thrilled about it all.
Keenan likes to grab Eric's playstation controller and start pushing buttons. He must have thought it was pretty funny that he got the controller and his seat.
