This year we were blessed over and over. Seeing Rylan take in the joys of the CHRISTmas season borught great joy to Tyson and I. He loved opening gifts and saying Happy Birthday Jesus! The older you get the joys of CHRISTmas begin to change. For Tyson and I these last Christmas's as parents have been our best Christmas's yet. Getting to see your child over joyed is all a parent wants. This year was neat because we were able to begin explaining to Rylan the true meaning of CHRISTmas. As always there are a lot of pictures, and I will do my best to describe each one.
Tyson and I have a tradition that we celebrate Christmas just us, our immediate family. So before we go to anyone else's house we have our own little Christmas as the Purdy's. This year Rylan helped us cook, and he wore his adorable apron.
This is the first gift that Rylan opened this year. There is no greater joy than seeing your child filled with joy!
Rylan and Granny right before we ate Christmas dinner.
Rylan/Santa playing with Uncle Eric. It was SO nice to have Eric and Kyra home. We miss them so much, and we cherish every minute with them. Rylan loved playing with Uncle Eric and his Tia!
This year it was so fun to set out Santa's cookies. Rylan helped us and was very anxious to eat the cookies himself. The next morning we he awoke to Santa's gift to him he also realized that Santa didn't eat all of his cookies. So what would you do? Well, Rylan decided to finish them off for Santa.
This was a picture of our sweet boy on Christmas morning. He went into the living room and went straight to his Santa gift. It was as though he had done this for years.
Uncle Kirby got him an awesome pair of boots that he was insistent on wearing as soon as he opened them. They are too cute on him. He goes around the house now saying "boo's", meaning boots.
Granny got him Moonwalk Mickey, and I will say that it is a hit. Anything that gets Rylan dancing he loves.
We are blessed beyond measure and we are so thankful for this life. We hope that you all had a very Merry CHRISTmas, and we wish you all a Happy New Year!
