Mason Christmas 2009!!!

This was Mason's 3rd Christmas!!! WOW how time just keeps flying!!! I have to say that this has been by far the most fun Christmas with him! It was just soooooo much fun this year for him! This was the first year that he knew that Christmas was coming and looked forward in anticipation. While we did go and see Santa at the mall last year... he really didn't understand the concept at all. This year he loooooved talking about "Santi Claus" coming to "my house!" We had so much fun explaining how Santa Claus would bring him gifts if he was a good boy. He really got into Christmas movies this year as well. He loved watching Polar Express and Elf! He also enjoyed when his favorite shows would have a Christmas special as well.

As it was nearing Christmas Mason and I were in the kitchen when all of a sudden he stopped in his tracks! He looks at me, very intently and tells me, "WAIT!!! Santa Claus is always watching!" Then he went back to what he was doing! HA!

The joy we felt with our kiddos was also bittersweet... as this is the first Christmas without both my mom and my cousin Axel. It was an absence that was felt immensely by many that I love. I brought a glass angel out to the cemetary to leave with all of the other gifts that had been brought to her. It was an angel that had an LED light on the inside that flickers like a candle... the amazing thing is that it has been going day and night for three weeks now. I love to drive through at night, and see it glow. She is still her with us... even if only in our hearts and memory.

Christmas morning!
