|“Dad, what is it?”|
A couple of days ago, Justin came home from work with this big box. We just love Elijah’s face when we put it down next to the Christmas tree. Even though he had no idea what was going on, he looked so intrigued! This package had been sent to us from our Texas family, and we knew that it contained our Christmas presents so we were pretty excited to open it up! Before diving in, we let Elijah do some exploring for a couple of minutes… (Imagine how excited he’ll be when he’s a little older and something like this arrives in the mail?!)
We finally opened it up, and even though almost everything was wrapped up, we were really excited to put it all under our tree. There were a few things for Elijah to play with before Christmas, and he was thrilled…
|A book of prayers for children|
We have already started reading this book of prayers and devotions to him at night, after his bible stories. The blocks that Elijah got are his favorite. It is so fun to watch him try and get to them!
|A few things for now… the rest was wrapped up|
Elijah also got a “Welcome to the World” present from some friends of ours in Texas, and we let him open that one up immediately. The gift contained a cute outfit that will fit him perfectly in a month or two from now. It has penguins on it, so we love it!
|Happy with the paper|
Just like most babies – he was most happy with the wrapper.
Thank you so much to our loved ones in Texas. We really appreciate this sweet gift and all the effort that you put into it. We are really excited to open it all up on Christmas!
