Christmas was so special this year ~ so much so, that I really have few words to share about it. Byron and I felt that Beatrix really hit that time frame in her life where the season really resonates to her with so much magic and wonder. She believes with her entire heart and soul. And more than her excitement over the gifts she receives, she absolutely comes alive in the togetherness of it all. Her spirit is such a gift to all of us.
On Christmas morning, after she unwrapped a few gifts from her nana and papa, out of the blue, at a point where there was a lull in conversation, she says, "Christmas is the best time of the year." We all smiled. But really, what happend was we all took a mental snapshot of her in that moment to tuck away into our hearts.
