This Was Christmas.

getting the tree…

crocheting and felting many trivets for gifts…

sending cards and boxes out…

adding his handprints to our tree skirt. next year there will be 2…

baking. lots and lots of baking…

a favorite gift, so simple…

and another favorite: his own drill to help daddy with projects : )

There is something so magical about Christmas with a child of your own. There is nothing like seeing his joy over the simplest things, like lights on houses and a stocking that’s full in the morning. Hearing him say “dis cookie is nummy Mommy!”, and an enthusiastic “wow!!” each and every time he opens a gift, melts my heart into a puddle. This year Christmas was just right, relaxing and spent with family. And I am still processing the fact that next year, we’ll be celebrating it with a 10 month old and a three year old!

So, a few days late, from my family to yours:
