I'm a dork for writing so soon, but I don't want to forget anything. It was a Christmas to remember. Taj was in awe of everything. It brought a sweet and pure spirit to the holiday that made this Christmas the best I've ever had. I can see how parents get so carried away.
Christmas eve we went tubing at a nearby golf coarse. It was going off- kids everywhere. We had a great time, but because I want to remember every detail I must mention the tumble Taj and Pop Pop took. They ran into some other tubers and Taj did a complete flip. He was brave and went down the hill a few more times. We're so proud.
Little Joseph. He had no problem playing dress up even though it probably made no sense to him. He and Mary both had donkeys. Kali's dress kept going up without her noticing. We all had to laugh at how inappropriate Mary was. Ha ha.
Here's Taj in his jammies playing with the train set Santa brought him. It was waiting for him at the bottom of the stairs. He smiled and ran to it when he saw it, and that was all we got from Taj for about the next two hours. We couldn't get him to even look away, even for other presents. His cousin couldn't stand seeing his stack of untouched presents waiting to be unwrapped and asked several times if she should help unwrap them.
It snowed the whole night but was a beautiful and sunny day. The guys went out to shovel and ended up playing. Since it was Christmas the roads didn't get cleared, and since we live on a little hill we had the perfect place for sledding. It was just one more thing to make it a perfect Christmas.
