It was another glorious holiday for the record books.
When Hudson rolled out of bed about 8:15 on Christmas morning, he asked: "Is Santa here?" He wasn't still hanging around our house, but he had left lots of goodies for one very special little boy.
Our Elf on the Shelf, Buddy, must have told Mr. Claus just how good Hudson was this year!
As soon as he saw all of his presents, his eyes lit up and he exclaimed "Oh my goodness!". The first thing he grabbed was his bouncy horse, and then he proceeded to notice all of the other fun stuff...including the infamous "rocketship" that Santa remembered! As he grabbed one thing after another, he would stop and give tight hugs to me and Will. And at one point he said: "I soo excited."
He enjoyed playing with all of his new things before we headed out to Will's parents' house for their traditional Christmas breakfast. We had a wonderful time...eating and opening more gifts and watching as Hudson and his little cousin played with their new toys! Hudson even tried to take his new tricycle for a spin around the living room.
Enjoying Christmas through a child's eyes is such a treat. I am so thankful for Hudson and all of the happiness he brings me....at Christmas-time and every other time, too.
p.s. Santa was good to me, too! I was surprised with a Nook! YAY! Now who's got a reading suggestion for me??
