The 10 Days of Christmas Travel
On the seventh day of Christmas travel, Christmas finally arrived. Boy there were a lot of presents and Stinky had so much fun. I am not sure what she enjoyed more playing with the new toys, playing with the wrapping paper, unwrapping the gifts or just climbing on top of the packages. She unwrapped so many gifts that she had to take a nap before coming back to unwrap more. Some of the fun gifts she got were Uggs from Grandpa, a crocheted Amigurumi and a velvet blanket both made by Mommy, a crocheted pink poncho that Momo made, fun musical instruments from Auntie BB, a sorting wood box from Daddy and most fun of all a bicylce. What a great day. Stinky got lots of tears from her Auntie BB, Grandpa, and Momo when they unwrapped the photo books she made (with help from Daddy and Mommy). The best part of Christmas though is the time spent opening up these gifts individually. It is so much fun to watch others open the gifts that you thoughtfully got for someone special. But let's not forget why we give gifts and the representation of it all. It is to celebrate the birth of Jesus and the gifts that were given to him by the shepards and the wiseman. I hope you all enjoyed Christmas as much as my family did making new memories to hold onto for a lifetime.
