By 4:30 AM we had both kids in bed with us saying they could not sleep. We had not really slept well ourselves. LouLou was trying to say it was because she didn’t feel well but Puck could not stop bouncing. So we got up way too early and went to see what Santa had brought us. I figured although it was early no one was going to get any more sleep so might as well
I have not been this excited for Christmas morning in a very long time. The kid’s excitement was so contagious and I could not wait to see my wife’s reaction to her present. In all the years we have been married something has always happened to make the season less bright. This year was different. Everything came together and while it was a simple holiday, it was a great one. The kids were so happy and excited and played all day with their new toys and each other and the amount of goodies consumed was ridiculous. We spent the rest of the day as a family and just had fun. All in all it was a great Christmas. The best one I have had in years. I guess there is more to Christmas now then me being a grumpy old man and I look forward to the years to come with my perfect little family.
