Christmas is here!

Last night as I was laying with Gizatu for him to fall asleep he kept asking about Santa.  Trying to explain to an almost three year old whose been home from Ethiopia for 4 months about Santa coming while he is sleeping is not the easiest thing.  He doesn't get it.  He still doesn't quite understand still.  He woke up this morning at 7:00 am (that might be the last time til he's a teenager that he sleeps that late on Christmas day).  We waited for Grammy and Peepaw to get dressed then headed downstairs to see what Santa brought!

This is the Santa stash before Gizatu came down. 
Gizatu playing with his truck.  The only thing he actually asked Santa for. 
Santa always leaves an apple and orange in stockings at our house.  He loved the orange.  Guess I'll be buying more of those in the future. 

We actually woke up to a white Christmas.  First Christmas in Alabama and it snows.  Who would have thought it, but it was wonderful. 

It has been an amazing Christmas this year.  Having a son has changed everything!  He's the best present ever.  Being a mommy has blessed my life like nothing else and showed me love like nothing else. 
Love this little man!
