But none of those reasons were the reason that it was the best Christmas ever.
It was the best because Chandler has fully joined us in Christmas this year.
"Who is dis present for"?
"Can I open it?"
"Its a... its a... LEGO INDIANA JONES"!
"Wait... where's my Darth Maul light saber?! Gimme dat Webster!"
I remember when we had to sit him on our laps and do hand over hand to get him to unwrap a present, which he may or may not have had any interest in.
This year we had a big breakfast at the table, and he didn't try to leave, or crawl under the table, or stand in his chair. He read his Christmas cards out loud, took turns opening presents, showed off his gifts and took pictures of us. He decorated the tree with us and played Wii bowling and tennis and soccer and even Yoga with us.
He is just with us now.
I even dared to put three glass ornaments on the tree this year. I might even go out tomorrow and pick up some more on sale.
I will leave you with some of his photographs from today. I got the camera out to take pics of the kids, but I forgot to and Chan took over.
