We had a lovely Christmas

by adustyframe ~ December 27th, 2006

I feel so blessed that our Christmas was completely delightful.

Aside from missing daddy very much, we had a blessed day.

We slept in and woke to a quiet morning.

We opened presents very leisurely. My son took a lot of time enjoying things and looking at things as he opened.

From Daddy, Angel Tree brought a pair of pants and 2 shirts and some pirate action figures.

He was so delighted that Daddy got him something. He wore his outfit all day.

He got lots of other wonderful things.

My husband’s childhood friend brought him a firetruck.

His Aunt sent him a game, his other aunt a very cool marble race track.

His Grandma sent him a gift card to Toys R Us (which he spent tonight on a pirate ship).

My sister sent my son a gift to give me. It is a beautiful teapot for our tea times.

We stayed in our jammies most of the day.

Little boy said “This was my best Christmas ever.”

Of course, I didn’t mention how awful it was that daddy wasn’t home! I smiled and thanked God for blessing us and for filling up the sad spaces in my little boy’s heart.
