A Very Merry Christmas

This was one of the very best Christmas seasons I have ever had. Henry was in love with the tree and the Christmas lights. He talked about Santa and would say he wants him to bring "CANDY!" (and when pressed for more details, included a request for M&Ms ). He loved opening presents. We had shreeks and giggles. Yells of "ANGRY BIRDS!" or "PLAYDOUGH!"  .  He loved his time with all of his family, constantly excited and amazed as we once again got in the car to spend entire days with our favorite people.

 It was just... perfect. And the idea that this amazing holiday could be better next year. That he will understand better, that he will be MORE excited, that this could get any more fun. It doesn't seem possible.

And I could talk about that forever.  Our love of Christmas.  Our amazing week.  But you see... I am sorta someplace special.

And you know, this is sorta important. So rather than talk and talk and talk about the magic that was Christmas, here is a slideshow. It says it better than I could anyway. Because truly, it was magic.

There is only one thing I can think of that will make Christmas even more wonderful next year...


  1. So happy for your family! :) See you Tuesday!!

  2. I couldn't get to the picture on Twitter, she is beautiful! Glad that everyone had such a great holiday!

  3. What an awesome present Nora is for all of you!
    I loved the slide sow and never really noticed just how much your handsome boy looks like you until about the 2:14 mark. The resemblance is uncanny.
