Memphis is finally at the age where he really *believes* in it all! We baked gingerbread cookies on Xmas Eve and placed them under the tree for Santa, and he even left a few carrots outside for the reindeer! He got everything he asked for, and even uttered a few oh.my.god.'s while opening his presents. Priceless.
Ruby got a kick out of it as well! Although she mostly played with the wrapping paper and her big brother's new toys...
Seeing them in their new Christmas pj's, surronded by gifts & paper (& chaos!) made Jean-Claude and I so happy & proud. It's kind of hard to remember what Christmas was like before we had kids (and weren't kids ourselves anymore). I loved Christmas growing up, and I hope my kids will grow up loving it all just as much as I did!
I'm already looking forward to next Christmas - the kids will be older and there will a new baby added to the mix... NO! Not me... my sister's baby will be about 7 months by this time next year... can't wait! :)
