Our flag pole was blowing in the wind on Christmas morning and it hit against the roof. When Lily heard it, she looked at Mom and said, “Gigi, I hear Santa on the roof!!” She was absolutely convinced that he was dropping off presents at that exact moment. She told Gigi they had to be quiet so he thought they were asleep!!
Carson was very interested in eating his puffs from his stocking and checking out one gift at a time. He would get hooked on a gift and not want to open another one. I think we will get him two things next year! One of the first things he opened was a truck, which he loved, so every present after he would say, “truck?!” He has several new trucks that are constantly being driven around the living room and loaded with animals.
Carson got a remote control car and was absolutely amazed when it started driving around. He loves driving it-I’ll be honest, he can drive the thing better than I can! I can already see him thinking his mother is a technology failure in the future.

We had a great Christmas this year, especially watching Carson learn what it’s all about! I’m always a little sad when the holidays end, but I was ready to start taking down the tree when Carson started redecorating it with his toys:
