Merry Christmas! The last couple of days were fabulous ones. Being around Cody made me feel like a kid again! Making cookies for Santa and tracking the big guy’s journey from the North Pole on the computer had my 3 year old filled with more excitement on Christmas Eve than I had ever seen from him. When the NORAD site showed that Santa was in the United States (Connecticut to be exact) Cody screamed with glee and exclaimed, “He’s almost here! He’s really coming!”. It. Was. Awesome. His happiness makes me love Christmas even more (and I didn’t think that was possible!). Next year, Eli is sure to join in the excitement which will make it doubly awesome. I’m already counting down the days.
My parents joined us for post Santa festivities. We had brunch and opened more presents! Neither kid took much of a nap (Eli did get 15 solid minutes in his Nana’s arms!) and were completely over stimulated by toys and sugar!
