Christmas Morning

Hanging out in new sleeping bag with his buddies
First jump on the new trampoline Giving his bike the inaugural spin

H opening stuff from his stocking

His favorite gift that was in his stocking was his first headlamp.

Harrison pulling out his Santa gifts

Well we had our first Christmas morning at our house since we have been married. And let me tell you, it was worth the wait. We made cookies and left milk out for Santa and since Santa has a particularly large belly this year, the cookies were a big hit. Harrison was emphatic about Santa leaving a cookie for him in the morning (which was the first thing he asked about I woke up bright and early because I was so excited about Harrison getting to experience Christmas morning. Harrison gets three gifts from Santa and one from mom and dad. We do three gifts for multiple reasons, but the genesis of it is because when Jesus was born, he received three gifts and as we try to instill the real meaning of Christmas to Harrison, that is a great jumping off point for all of our discussions. Plus, he gets so many gifts from family, that there really is no need to give him anything else. Santa filled his stocking and then brought him a sleeping bag, a bike, and a toy plane. We gave him a trampoline. He loved all of his gifts (except for the socks and fork and knife set that were in his stocking...but that is understandable).
