Merry Christmas! We are visiting my in laws for this holiday week on their farm in New Hampshire. Our son’s first Christmas is a white one for sure. We have had him up here for a week before and he generally handles it well. Its relatively easy to visit here because they have some of the essentials like pack and play(s) and a bouncy seat. The parade of family and friends has no end and they are all thrilled to see him. He had a good Christmas overall. Lots of cute fun presents and time spent being passed around the room. I think we enjoyed it more then he did, but I have a feeling that might change when he gets a bit older. I also had a good Christmas! I got some great stuff, but I have to admit that my favorite this was the mini Lego set in my stocking. For 30 years my parents have always put a small Lego set in my stocking. I would immediately open and assemble it in record time with a smile on my face. This year when we did the Christmas thing at my parent’s house in CT there was no Lego set in my stocking. My dad put lots of thought into the rest of my gifts, but I was very sad that this tradition had been broken. I expressed this to my wife during the car ride home. So fast forward to Christmas morning in NH and what is in my stocking… A LEGO SET!!! The best part is that its a 3 in 1 set so I got to build 3 things! I hope My son’s Christmas memories are as happy as mine have been and that I have the insight to understand and maintain the best of them through the years.
