Christmas Really Is The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

We had such a wonderful Christmas here at Wade's World. Jeremy's parents came up Thursday evening and spent time with us until Christmas morning. We loved having them here, and Jackson just had a blast with his Papa and Gigi. Christmas Eve we headed over to Bass Pro Shop to see Santa Claus one more time, made fudge, and relaxed that afternoon until we went to our church's Christmas Eve candlelight service, which was really nice. We went home and Jackson went to bed relatively easily, especially considering how excited he was!

After Jackson went to bed, Santa's little elves began getting things ready. Jackson's big gift from Santa Claus was a wooden swing set with a fort (just like he had asked for!). Unfortunately Santa was so busy on Christmas with all the deliveries that he had to make, that he wasn't able to set the swing set up. He left Jackson a really nice note with a picture of the swing set, and special instructions for Jackson to help his Daddy build the swing set! Jackson also got some puzzles, coloring books, games, and a Toy Story 3 Woody guitar from Santa.

Jeremy and I got Jackson a Batman cave (just like he asked for!), a Batmobile, some legos, books, and a few other things. All in all, Jackson racked up! He got more books, puzzles and games, animals, a new pirate ship (which he loved!), a barrel of monkeys, an Auburn football uniform and helmet (to get him ready for the BCS Championship game on January 10th!), and so much more! Our house looks like a tornado has gone through, and there are probably a million toys that I haven't mentioned.

We had such a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, and I'll post pictures really, really soon. I think the best moment of Christmas day for me was just after Jackson opened up his presents Christmas morning. He was busy running around wanting us to get all the presents out of their boxes when all of a sudden he dropped everything and ran over to me, gave me a huge hug and kiss, leaned in really close to my ear and whispered, "Merry Christmas, Mama! I love you!"

For me, that was the best Christmas gift in the world, and I couldn't have asked for more!
