Christmas 2008

Christmas 2008 was our first Christmas as a family of four. We feel extremely blessed to have 2 sweet boys and thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Christmas with them. Christmas is much more special and fun with kids - especially our awesome kids!!

I love that Dawson is so easily excited and his enthusiasm and joy this Christmas were great! Last year, it took us all day to open presents (seriously, Dawson still had wrapped presents under the tree that evening) because Dawson wanted to take the time to open and play with each toy after he unwrapped it. This year he went in spurts, opening a few presents, stopping to play with them, then opening a few more presents. So he did manage to open all of his gifts by lunch. I'm glad that he took his time and didn't go into a frenzy speedily opening gift after gift, without appreciating each one.

Brady didn't really know what was going on this Christmas. He slept through much of the gift opening, and vaguely watched Dawson open his gifts for him and show them to him. He did get some pretty neat things that caught his attention and has enjoyed playing with some of his new toys throughout the day. All in all, it was a good first Christmas for such a little guy.

We'll soon have pictures of our fun Christmas day, including Dawson riding his new big bike - he's a pro! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too! I'm sad that it's over.
