It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas... Week of Nov. 29th

I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. 
The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending.

Cameron was quite busy helping his parents with the Christmas tree.  Stella, the cat, and Cam took turns playing in the big tree box.

The amount of ornaments seems to be growing each year (quite possibly because Jane and Grandma keep acquiring them...) so it takes a little longer to trim the tree.  Cameron was feeling a bit under the weather this week, so relaxation on the couch was in order.  Apparently, Stella the cat was feeling left out and needed to cuddle as well.                                                             

Friday included a checkup for Cam where he received four immunizations plus his flu shot.  Jane couldn't believe it when her brave boy didn't even let out a whimper!  The nurse who administered all of those shots certainly looked relieved when Cam said bye to her and even blew her a kiss.
Grandma and Grandpa (Oma and Opa) both arrived on Friday afternoon to spend the evening and celebrate Oma's birthday!  Happy Birthday Oma!! Cam even had a chance to hang out with Opa and watch a little golf.

With all of the activity, a planned play date was something Cameron didn't want to give up.  His classmate and friend, Karlee, spent the afternoon on Saturday hanging out with her pal.  They went for a walk with Chris, played trains with Jane and laughed at the same jokes in Blues Clues.   Karlee told Jane she likes to play with Cam because they like a lot of the same things and he is a good friend.

And in the simplest of terms, what other criteria does one need for a buddy?
