Christmas Day

Even though Christmas has always been my favorite holiday, it's a thousand times better when you have a child. Although we clearly were way more excited about Calvin's presents than he was.

I think the day overwhelmed him, especially since I made him dress in his Santa outfit twice to see both Will's and my families. As you see he isn't smiling in any of the pictures, and believe me I took a billion. Calvin preferred the ribbon, wrapping, and ornaments to his new toys. Regardless, it was still a great day and we all feel extremely blessed.

Note Calvin's twin shirt...(in family pic and larger picture below).

He is so darling in his Santa outfit! I totally agree about Christmas with kids - they make everything wonderful! Remind me that I said that when Katelyn is 16 and Brooke is 12. I loved the monkey photo too but that Steven King thing was spooky.

What an adorable Santa, let me guess how happy he was to be Santa though.

Rain, I am so excited for you that you have something else to dress up besides that cat! :) Calvin is so cute!
