Christmas Morning Magic


There's nothing quite like waking up in the dark of the morning to feel a lumpy bumpy stocking weighing heavily on the foot of your bed.

There's nothing quite like the crackle that it makes as you pull it close and feel the weight of its promise in your lap.

There's nothing quite like the sleepy sickness that engulfs you as you jump out of bed, giddy with excitement, and peek breathlessly into the top.

There's nothing quite like the pure joy that comes from those first  pre-dawn presents, no matter what they may be.

There's nothing quite like passing these moments on to your boy and sharing the magic with him.
