There is nothing, absolutely nothing, like watching Christmas unwrap itself through the eyes of your children.
Last year our youngest still needed help tearing into his packages. It was a slow process, with a few presents being opened, followed by some playing and then a few more being opened. It actually took them 2 days opening their stuff that way.
I knew this year was going to go by a lot faster, but I wasn’t prepared for the whirlwind that hit the living room at 7:30.
I barely had time to blink, much less take pictures. I wish, now, that I had set up the video camera to catch all the excitement. (Definitely going to try that next year!)
There were quite a few, “Oh my goodness!” remarks, lots of smiles, and 2 happy kids (3 if you count the furry one who devoured 1/3 of her raw hide bone).
Today we woke to a blizzard.
I guess I should tell my son to be a little more specific next time he wishes for snow!
He had been wanting snow, and we sure have it today! We went out for a bit this morning, and had about 6-7 inches, with drifts of a foot or so at that time, and it was still coming down very heavy!
Well, it’s time to go; the “bat signal” is calling all super heroes, and my son is waiting for me!
What toys have you been enjoying with your kids?
