You have an amazing ability to bring out emotion in your father. I wanted to write this down so that we never forget it. One night last week when your Daddy came home from work, you ran to him smiling as you always do. Then you said, “Welcome to home Daddy!”
Daddy scooped you up and gave you a huge hug and it was then that I spotted the evidence of the effect you have so often on him. He was smiling and there was “sand in his eye.”
We love you little man. You continue to delight and amaze us.
Here are some pictures from early festivities of Christmas 2008. You are so enchanted with everything that is going on. Understanding who Santa is, making cookies and gingerbread, going out in the snow….you are loving it all. The Christmas gift you are getting is so big that we really had to have you open part of it early. We are going to Portland to see family for Christmas and we can’t transport it all. Hint to those looking at pictures….what might go ON a brand new train table? You already have a small Thomas starter set and you have asked Santa and Mommy and Dad for a big Thomas set. So we shall see my little man.
Here you are putting the table together with Daddy.
And here is our first attempt at a gingerbread house. We did pretty good!
I love seeing the magic of Christmas through your eyes, Aidan. Thank you for this most precious gift. This is my best Christmas ever.
