Are you guys ready for Christmas yet? I am not, but almost, and I just can’t wait to see the boys faces Christmas morning. That is my favorite part, the boys come down the stairs and see what Santa brought them and open their stockings. Check out this throw back pic, I know it isn’t the best quality but I just love it. This is the first Christmas after the boys were officially adopted, so their second Christmas with us. It was such a perfect day! I can still remember the excitement that morning. They had never experienced Christmas before they came to us, so the Christmas before this, they were so confused. They would open one gift and ask over and over if they could keep it. We would tell them that they were all theirs, but they just didn’t understand. They would just sit their with one gift with a pile next to them of more to open, but they had no idea what to do. It was so amazing to see them learn the tradition of Christmas. As you can see in this picture, they caught on very fast…lol! This picture perfectly sums up their personalities too. Mason is so curious and doesn’t want to miss anything and Matthew focuses on each individual thing, one thing at a time. I just love their little faces!!
