Christmas is always special to me because it means spending time with family.
This year, it was Ericka's 2nd time experiencing Christmas. I love how she is understanding the concept of Christmas and actually participating in the present unwrapping portion of the day ;) Ericka loved all the presents she received from Norm & I, family and friends. She was spoiled... we can't thank enough everyone who contributed to her thoughtful gift(s).
The morning portion of the day was spent with Norm & Ericka (and baby in belly of course). We did the present thing and then had breakfast and even snuck in a nap. Nothing is better than being with my little family. 3 years ago (2008) Norm surprised me by proposing to me Christmas morning with the most gorgeous ring ever!! What a memorable moment that was, and I'll always remember it every Christmas morning.
