Stacy and I learned a couple things this morning about Christmas and one and a half year olds. First, we bought way too many gifts. He was good with the first gift he pulled out of his stocking and the stocking itself. Second, the best way to open a stocking is to; step one, lay the stocking on the ground; step two, lay down in front of the stocking and try to peer in to the bottom; and finally, step three, reach in as far as possible and pull out whatever you can grab.
Watching Owen open his stocking made our Christmas. We could have stopped there without any gifts or dinners or decorations. Just give me those 10 minutes of Owen and his stocking. Merry Christmas!
