This is Holden's first Christmas where he understood the high of opening a mass amount of presents. So far, he was patient enough to leave gifts still cloaked until we gave him permission after a leisurely* brunch (pumpkin pancakes, turkey bacon, scrambled eggs, oh my!).
His favorite present: a tricycle from my parents and sister, which Holden absolutely adored ("I pedaled, Mama!"). I think his second favorite is the electric drum set from his dad, though in my heart I know it was the Kumon mathematic workbooks Santa got him.
I love how Christmas makes the world a bit brighter (Literally! Bedazzled homes = <3) make and encourages lovelier behavior towards the people we interact with. "Smiling's my favorite." - Buddy the Elf
I hope everyone had a jolly, delicious holiday!
*I savored it. The next decade will just be coffee at dawn and five hours of chasing Holden, reminding him to eat.
