I was thrilled this year we had a White Christmas in North Carolina. It started snowing Christmas Day and didn't stop until the next day and we had 5-6 inches (in Mooresville). Killian loved playing in the snow the first time.
What a difference from last Christmas when Killian wasn't even crawling yet, and would just sit contentedly wherever you placed him! He's a bit more "interactive" this year :)
We didn't have any issues this year with Killian messing with the Christmas tree. He knows if he wants to touch anything on the tree to use his "gentle touch." Killian was so sweet with Grandpa's dog, Patrick.
Killian actually wasn't that interested in opening presents Christmas morning. He was excited about his existing toys... and cleaning. Cleaning is very exciting. I love how Aunt Gay observed his obsession with cleaning and said, "It must be a Montessori thing."
The one present Killian was interested in was the family calendar. Here he is trying to steal it from Great-Grandpa. He must have thought it was a book.
Later in the week, Killian did enjoy opening Grandpa and Marci's presents. I think the pretty gold bow and shiny wrapping paper enticed him.
He was very happy to find Elmo inside of the box.
