It is 6:00 AM on Christmas morning, 2017. I had planned on writing this post in the quiet morning before everyone awoke but my eldest woke up at 4:30 AM and is very excited so no chance on getting him to go back to sleep. So here I sit, in front of the T.V. fireplace while my son watches his iPad and we give my wife and other son some more time before we are obliged to wake them up to open presents.
Christmas Eve 2016, so full of magic made even more-so by the excitement of my oldest son. I wish I could have written a long post on this night but I was too exhausted from the party we had just had. I also spent some time speaking with an old friend and his wife. Since I archive all of my old pictures and momentos from my past I was able to make a folder with our childhood pictures and send him the link as a Christmas present.
