Merry Christmas! Well, in the blog-o-sphere, anyway.
|Here you come, down the stairs!|
Your little face lighting up is my favorite Christmas memory.
Santa did pretty well with your gifts this year, too. You received fuzzy bear slippers that you really like. They keep your feet toasty warm, and the eyes light up when you walk! They crack me up. You also received a cookbook that was all about how cooking works. Santa knows that you love to cook with me and Daddy, so this book was perfect for you. You also got a new Pete the Cat book, which you were super excited about. Another gift was a set of gears, and you really seemed to like them, too.
It really was a nice Christmas at our house, but now it was time to pack up and head off to Grandma and Papa's house to join Uncle Brian and Aunt Maggie and Nole, Uncle Gary, Aunt Megan and Payton and Taylor to have a little more Christmas madness. But first we had to have one more picture with your new basketball hoop and ball.
|Holy Cow. That's a lot of stuff...|
From Grandma and Papa, you received a new fleet of tractors and attachments and a cool sleeping bag. You also got new barn boots so that way you could help Papa out with his chores since he's having trouble with his knee. You opened all of your gifts, and you were thrilled with them, but then Grandma and Papa had one more trick up their sleeve...
You and your cousins are some lucky little people. And honestly, our whole family is a group of lucky people. And that's what this all comes down to: Family. You are a loved little man. You're loved by Daddy and me, and you have four sets of Aunts and Uncles, four cousins, two sets of grandparents and one Great Poppey. Spending time with all of them during this special time of year is one of the greatest gifts you will ever have, and I hope you realize just how important that is.
So, there's our Christmas 2012 in two blog posts. Took me a while to type it all up, and I know Daddy was wondering what the heck I was writing over here. I commandeered his laptop for half an hour! But it was all worth it to document our memories of another holiday season with each other.
