I’m participating in the Best Of 2009 Blog Challenge. Every day this month, I write something different about what’s happened this year. Today, a special Christmas post about the best gift of 2009. Also, there is another photo from today over at the Daily Photo.
This time last year, we left hospital in the winter sunshine, wondering what on earth we’d created and how we’d survive. It’s been a wonderful year in many, many ways, but it’s been hard. And we’re not doing it again.
Christmas this year has been all about David.
Paper was ripped and parcels were unwrapped.
Boxes were played in.
New garages were played with.
Footballs were hugged and headed.
And Wilfred had a great time with his sock monkey:
David’s favourite present (and our favourite of his!) is by far and away the simple, no-batteries-required, quiet football. Mine is the morning of advanced driver training from Joe, and his was the wooden bricks that my parents bought for David! The best thing ever, though, was spending Christmas as a family. Here’s to many more to come.
