It was Mason's third Christmas and definitely the best one - Well, I'm pretty sure I said the same last year and will say the same every year! Watching the magic of it through Mason's eyes made me fall in love with this holiday again. I have amazing memories of Christmas as a kid but not so much as an adult. Not having the closest and most loving family, back to when I was in France I always preferred working than spending time with my family on Christmas. It's kind of sad but it is what it is. Seeing everyone celebrating it with all of their families always makes me a bit sad of not having the same but I do have my own little family now and so much to be grateful for.
Mason counted every night with us until Santa would come. He was so excited and it's the first year he really understood what was going on. He woke up and went straight to the tree to see all the packages but he was surprisingly very gentle. He opened them one by one with a break between each to play with every single toy he got. He was lucky to get all he asked for and more! He did open our presents too but knew right away for who which one was.
It was a successful Christmas and now every morning he wakes up asking for more gifts, hahah! I can already say I'm sure he will have an amazing birthday in a few months!
I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas, with your own small family or big extended one...
