Project - Themed Layout: Santa is so very magical
by Erica Hernandez
See, this is the stuff I want to remember about holidays. This is the stuff I want to remember about everyday life…the way the boys see the world, the way they are amazed by the simplest things - things that we take for granted. I never gave it a second thought when I moved our tiny tree from the corner of the room out to the center this Christmas Eve. It was out of necessity - to allow more room for Santa to leave his gifts for us without blocking entry to the kitchen (coffee is a MUST Christmas morning afterall :p) Jake though, was astounded by Santa's magic. It was the first thing he noticed Christmas morning - before anything else, it was that Santa had moved our tree. And that made him “so very magical” I only wish I could permanently make record of the lilt in his voice when he charged into our bedroom to share this bit of Christmas magic with us. I think I went a little overboard on this one but there are so many fun Christmas goodies in shopping that I couldn't stop myself!
