pre christmas.

This weekend we had a *dress rehearsal* for christmas for the little man, and celebrated with Mamaw and Papaw, Uncle bri and Aunt Suz, and all of the Sextons! Since Brian and Suzanne are going to be in Washington for the holidays, we celebrated a wee bit early. It was a wonderful day and definitely felt like a true holiday for me. Since my mom has passed, it's been difficult to feel the spirit of the holidays over the past decade or so...but thanks to a certain little fellow, the magical feeling has returned times 1000! Kaden was ecstatic and overjoyed over all of his gifts....he opened each and every thoughtful gift with wide eyes and was so sweet to everyone, giving them each a big hug and saying thank you (sometimes to the wrong person, but hey...who doesn't need an extra hug).
