|indoor skydiving experience with all my brothers, but at the point this picture was taken, he had no idea why i had given him this toy...|
This year we woke up casually around 7AM and exchanged a few gifts with marcus' parents, but it sure didn't feel like christmas until we got to andrew and reachel's house and the little ones were in their christmas jammies with smiles on their faces. it seems christmas isn't christmas without kiddies.
we ate breakfast and visited a bit before andrew and reachel announced that today was the day they could unwrap the gifts under the tree! coco was giddy and because coco was excited levi was too.
once we started unwrapping, the kids opened a toy or two and then when andrew asked if coco wanted to open her next present, her simple reply was, "No."
she was thoroughly content with her homemade swing and levi was sitting pretty with a bottle of milk in hand. they had something they liked, and that was quite enough.
sometimes it takes the contentment of a child to teach us a lesson in simplicity.
(and sometimes it takes watching older siblings spend a lot of time and money on presents for little ones to realize that you're never buying your kids anything for at least the first few years...)
Hope your Christmas was lovely!
