After Christmas Detox

As my headache from Christmas begins to fade, I sit back and think about how wonderful our day was. This was Pickle's first real Christmas. Yes he is 2 and has had 2 other Christmas mornings, however he was too little to understand. This year he totally got it. I wish I had the thought in my head to take pictures. Hindsight is 20/20.

Our little man was tucked into our bed around 9:30 (yes, I know that it is late, but with the day we had on Christmas eve, and having visitors staying at our house...... you know how it goes). Once he was asleep, Santa went to work. For Christmas we purchased him the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Kitchen Table, it was pretty easy to get set up, it just took a bit of time. We also got him two baskets of food, a "taco kit", and Uno Moo. So while Daddy went to work building Santa's table for him, Mommy got to work wrapping and filling the stocking. The elves went to bed after 11.

Since little man was snuggled in Mom and Dad's bed we were able to sleep in a bit. We just failed to tell Pickle, he needed to sleep in too. Thankfully we woke up before Pickle was off our bed and running. He grabbed his beloved blue couch pillow (which is way to big for his little body) and ran out of our room. He took off right past the Christmas tree, right past his new kitchen and into our kitchen. All the sudden his came to a halt in front of our kitchen sink. The boy was lucky he didn't fall he stopped so quickly. He turned around and ran to his new kitchen. The look of wonder and shock was great. It was a memory that I will forever remember. It took some time, but he finally noticed the other gifts under the tree, and started handing them out to Daddy and myself.

While little man played with his toys, We started getting ready for the day. First we went to my in-laws for breakfast, then to my parents for lunch/dinner, and back to the in-laws for desert. It was great day. This day was the reason so many people look forward to the holidays. THE BEST DAY EVER!
