Christmas, a week early
The kids got in their jammies and opened a few gifts.
Nicholas was beside himself with joy. Nicholas has been counting down the days until Christmas since summertime.
It was a treat for me to witness Christopher open his very first Christmas gift ever. Not that he was all that excited about it -- he liked the wrapping paper the best.
Oh, I take that back. He really loved this present from Nicholas.
A sweet moment of sibling love. I am glad I got this on camera.
I love my biggest girl. I am going to miss her so much.
I started to get a little sad during our celebration: I am not going to be here for Christmas. That is kind of huge.
I thought about how, next Christmas, they will be so much bigger and one year closer to leaving the nest. I know, I am getting a little too sentimental.
I loved watching my boys play together. I am so happy Elijah will be joining our crew. And that he will be here for Christmas next year.
