Christmas morning was a blur!! Wrapping paper just flew around the room. We opened and opened toy after toy. They were thrilled to know that Santa got their lists, even though he didn't get everything right. Some of the gifts were for the wrong kid, but since they came in a 3-pack, they were happy to exchange them among each other. They have shared the haul very well.
Months ago Joseph woke up to surprise me with a special breakfast--a basil omelet. It was delicious! He made everything on his own and later told me of his plan. He wanted to make me breakfast in hopes of earning himself a cooking class. He had written out a note to remind himself. I of course saved it. This Christmas my sister, mother and I grouped together to make the cooking class a reality. Joseph opened the gifts as he had all the others, but as the gift became a little more understood--he melted my heart. He got a cooking hat and chef's cooking jacket, which he thought was a little strange. Once he got the certificate for the cooking class--his little face lit up. He then saw the little note he wrote. His eyes teared up. He was so surprised to see that I had saved it and that we were actually sending him to cooking school. That was the best gift ever!!
I have never felt more blessed in my life.
