For those who celebrated Christmas, I hope everyone you had a lovely holiday weekend! I certainly did. Don is 2 and 1/2 and although he did not fully understand Santa Claus, he loved pointing him out along with Frosty the snowman and Rudolph the red nosed reindeer…a personal favorite of mine! He also LOVED opening presents, playing with presents and making sugar cookies (he liked the eating part a lot too!).
There is this period of time in life when Christmas is just another holiday to see family, when the mystery and excitement is just not there anymore. Having Don in the house made this Christmas an absolute joy! Next year there will be four of us and Don will be sure to understand Santa Claus a whole lot more.
As another blogger recently posted about what her mother taught her…I am excited to continue to get to create a holiday experience for my son and daughter that will bring them as much joy and laughter as it brings me to watch them enjoy it.
Happy almost New Year!
