Christmas Morning! We read the Christmas story, sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and led the boys out to the living room. There in front of the tree was the wooden castle we had set up for them the night before. Atticus couldn't even talk, he just stood there with his hands in his pocket repeating "It's...It's...Oh...It's...." We asked him, "What is it?!" He just looked stood there..."I can't think..."
I gently said, "It's your castle -- for you and Dietrich!" And he finally yelped and broke out into a huge grin. Brad and I were so happy --- hooray for lavishing good gifts on your children -- so just like God our Father...so perfect for celebrating Jesus' birthday!!!!
After this photo my camera died and would not recharge. I thought I was going to lose all the photos on the camera (Dietrich's birthday) as well as getting no Christmas pictures, but Tom amazingly untangled the whole mess and the old photos were saved and a couple days after Christmas I was able to take pictures again. So no pictures of the Johannsen Clan Christmas Eve party or actual Christmas day...Sorry!!!!
