Merry Christmas!!

Hope your day was filled with all that you dreampt of and MORE!

We had a great day! A bit of a 'scaled' down year for us but by the kids reactions you would NEVER know it! And that is what made it GREAT!

The biggest hit was one of Mason's gifts....he got very few 'gifts' under the tree because our gift to him was relieving him of some debts he had with us for his car (nicest present that anyone got! But hey...sometimes it just works that way) Of course mom couldn't let him go without ANYTHING under the a small boy....from about 3 until he was 5 ish he fell in LOVE with these little metal 'real' tools called "Cool Tools". He had everyone that they ever made (we think) and they were the highlight of his toys...played with them EVERY day...and one time even helped dad fix the car because of a Cool Tool! (none of dads tools were working! HA!) He had the whole get up....the tool box, the tool belt and even the work bench...they make them now but they are NOT metal any the 'real' has gone out of most families grow the toys are sold at the yearly yard sale or otherwise lost in the ages of growing up...well....Mom found a few of them on none other than 'Ebay' of the auctions I quickly was the BIG collection....BUT it went way over the price we could pay...BUT much to my surprise I won the other bid! Not quite as big...but still said the same wrapped it with sweet smiles on her face praying that it would hit the same spot with him as it did with us!

And sure enough....the second he saw what it was...tears poured out of this 18 year old young man....he held each tool with those eyes that brought him back to when he was a young sweet was the day!

So...I'll close for this beautiful Christmas Day and pray that yours held a moment that was so dear and sweet....
