My favorite memory of Christmas this year was watching Alex.
He usually has to be prompted many times to open a gift
and he often submits to Spencer's bossiness and lets
his brother take over and unwrap them for him.
This year he was very engaged and didn't need any prompting at all!
He initiated everything himself, was focused and even smiling.
I also observed this at our business party in our home
earlier this month, but actually thought it was a fluke! ha.
When I sat down to exchange gifts on Christmas Eve with my four
men, I didn't even have my camera with me. It's usually over in a
60 second whirlwind and they gather their treasures and run to
their bedroom! ha. But when I saw Alex enjoying it so much,
I had to snap a few photos.
Sometimes, the best gifts aren't wrapped and under the tree!
