The holidays are a time of family, celebration and love. This year was particularly special because it was Wyatt's first Christmas! The much anticipated awe and wonder of our little babe came to a crashing halt when he seemed to be more interested in the people around him then the bows and ribbons artistically wrapped around gifts galore. The planning and preparation that went into picking out Wyatt's first Christmas tree, decorating it with baby's first Christmas decorations, ensuring Wyatt's Santa hat was snug on his head and little cookies baked in the oven for dad, was more exciting for me I am afraid. I wanted everything to be just perfect for Wyatt's First Christmas, and truly it was, although he will not rememeber and did not care. I think Wyatt has it right in figuring out what this season is about and it is really a time to reflect and remember the birth of Jesus, taking interest in the people around you. A weekend with my mom and the girls in Texas and a week in Montana with the Peila clan was well spent and will be marked as a joyous first Christmas for all those who could attend. We are looking forward to what next year will bring and can't wait for all the New Year has to offer.
