Our family spent Christmas here in Colorado. My own mama was supposed to come visit us for the holidays but sadly the blizzard we got just a few days back shut down the highway she would take to get here, so she spent the holiday with my sister and we spent the holiday as a family of 4. The boys were over the moon excited for Santa's big visit (I'm wondering how many years of that I have left, especially from my quizzical 7 year old who can't quite sort out how Santa can hit up ALL those houses in such a short amount of time). We opened gifts and enjoyed a big, fat meal with our dearest friends (I was too busy cooking Prime Rib and 'taters to capture any pictures of the meal or our time spent with them). It was quiet and fun and peaceful and perfect. Exactly, in my opinion, what the holiday is all about.
Checking his list and letter to Santa
Yep, I love them, big time.
Letters and cookies for Santa. If you can't read Holden's it says:
"I hope you had a great trip, December is my favorite holiday, from Holden"
