MAGICAL MERRY CHRISTMAS DAY

It all started out with Christmas tickles and smiles.

Then opened a car or six from Grandma Soules (a little spoiled!).

Excited to see so many presents!

Thrilled that this new barn is his for Christmas from his great-grandmother.

From there, I stopped taking pictures and enjoyed the rest of the day.

Things I want to remember: 

  • Henry loving every gift that it took him three days to open all of his presents
  • Henry wanting to play with the new gift right away and forget about the rest
  • Simple Christmas dinner of ham, mashed potatoes, corn and cranberry sauce all made lovingly by Kevin
  • Sneaking Christmas kisses with Kevin all day long
  • Having the apartment completely quiet while Henry napped after so much excitement!
  • Every single little smile that Henry flashed up at us
  • The generosity of SO MANY of our friends that gave us Henry's orthotic braces
  • Henry just LOVING EVERYTHING, he was so excited that he couldn't sleep!

While it was a very simple, quiet Christmas-- It was very merry indeed! We could not have felt more blessed and loved. Thank goodness that our Savior was born and we're blessed each year as we celebrate his birth.
