it seems to me that this happens the same way every year…. I start anticipating christmas day, pretty much as soon as halloween is passed. I think about all the holiday time off my hubby usually gets and the time we get to spend with family and friends and all the fun decorations, smells and sounds that are part of this beautiful winter holiday. I get excited about presents i will be getting for my kid(s) and even about those festive holiday cups starbucks starts handing out about the same time (right after halloween). But just like that those two months fly by and soon enough it’s christmas eve and all throughout the joyful time of being with my loved ones and enjoying each other’s company, I start feeling somewhat sad. I realize that all too soon it will come to an end and I will be waiting another year till I get to be excited over all the festivities that Christmas brings about.
|my little elf. I love the way my bro placed this hat on him just so that his ears are sticking out like that making him totally look like a little elf.|
|Dariu my brother showing Seth how to use one of the
toys he got him for Christmas.

These next ones are from Christmas morning! All the gifts were for Seth. he got some great stuff. My parents got him his first bike… he actually ended up with two of them one from them and one from Eddie my other brother.
|loved watching him get into the unwrapping of his presents|
Christmas Eve found us at home… at one point our little Seth took his little doodle pad to the living room sat himself down right up to the tree with his little feet under the tree and started doodling. I hear him calling, “mami mami mami” so I go to investigate and there he is just as you can see him in the photos below. He looks at me and says “tree” so I say tree then he says “becu” romo for light, so I say becu then he picks up a little light and looks at me and says “arde” which means hot to him. He was so precious just sitting there on his own with his doodle pad and enjoying the tree it melted my heart so I ran and grabbed my camera to get these photos. It really spoke to me that he enjoyed the lights on the tree so much that he had to go sit there in the living room even if it meant being away from us. I can’t say how much i love my boys, and if you are a parent you can totally understand. and even though parenting is difficult and requires self sacrifice and lots of responsibilities it is the single most rewarding thing I can say I have ever done.
