This Christmas is one I want to remember always.
Christmas time is one of the hardest times for me to be away from my family,
but being able to share the day with our boys and make it special for them makes me happy.
We started the morning out with singing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus.
The boys thought it quite silly at first but by the end of the song (which is much longer in Portuguese) they were shouting it!
Then they got to open their stockings, and the gifts we had for them. They were truly the sweetest. Hugged me after each opened gift and said thank you a million times.
After the boys opened their gifts, Isanon and I snuck away to open ours!
This was the first year that Isanon completely surprised me with all my gifts, and I truly loved every single one of them.
Isanon is going to kill me for posting this picture, but I can't help it...his little kid happiness is the best! Oh, and mom, here is proof that he loved the games you sent for him! :)
After opening presents, we had breakfast and decorated our sugar cookies.
And then....Santa came with more gifts...
Look at those happy faces!
