The Magic behind a Barbie nutcracker tin

12 years ago today, Moni and Chan woke up in anticipation of Santa Clause, they ran to the living room to find soot covered boot prints all over the wood floor and carpet, as Moni took a closer look to the wood stove she saw it, a magical piece of Santa's suite in the hing of the wood stove door. She cherished this little piece of Santa suite and has for the past 12 years kept it safe in a Barbie nutcracker tin. Last night while we set out cookies for Santa Clause (yes he comes a day early to our house) she told Sky the story of that Christmas morning, while his eyes were full of anticipation she got out the little Barbie tin and asked if he would like to keep the Christmas magic of Santa's suite, and of course he said yes. so now the magic of that day is with Skylar to hold and dream of each and every Christmas morning.

"open it!"

so last night Sky was hanging out in his chair with his sissy, and he was asking to see a present, so I got the one to Skylar from his sissy out and placed it on his lap, he ran his hands all around it, twisted it around and checked it out for about 10 mins, I walked out of the room and as soon as I was out of sight I hear, "sissy, open it!" sissy "no Sky you got to wait for Christmas." Sky "sissy, open it open it" I laughed to myself, came back in the room and Sky was sitting there looking at his present. This morning I told his daddy about it, so daddy asked "did you ask sissy to open it?" Skylar "yep!"

Valentine keeping an eye on that dino....

Skylar was having some down time the other day and wanted to watch Land Before Time, well with that he has to play with his baby dinosaur, he was pushing the buttons on top to make it move, while Valentine watched ever so close.

Skys drawing of him and I, he is so cute and I love each and every drawing he does!

The magic of Christmas shines in his eyes

we have had a great week, the trees are all decorated, as I get deliveries of gifts and wrap them for under the tree, Sky tries his best to talk me into letting him open them. Now usually I would cave and let him have one or two, but so far Ive made him wait and he seems t be just fine with that, but I can tell he is getting more and more excited!

My dad and the girls, our dogs LOVE my dad and I think he feels just about the same, nothing like cuddles on the couch while watching a movie.
