Santa came early

Since we are traveling to Louisiana we went ahead and had our Christmas with Cain on Tuesday night. We figured if we had Christmas early he could play with his new toys on Wednesday and we wouldn’t have to pack them in the car for our ride to Louisiana. We already know our car is going to be packed to capacity on the ride home after Cain gets Christmas presents from the grandparents.

I don’t know if Cain knew what to think of all his presents. At first he just looked around at them and finally tore the wrapping paper just a little. Hopefully it was just a warm up and he will go crazy Christmas morning.

This year we just bought Cain a few toys. Nothing too much but a few things he could enjoy.

Brad had two boxes that were supposed to be surprise presents that he bought just for Cain. One of the presents was for Cain but he surprised me and the other present was from him and Cain to me.

He surprised me with earrings from Tiffany & Co.

I have to tell you the story behind the earrings. They are SO SPECIAL to me. Something I never shared on my blog is that Brad gave me a necklace right before I had Cain. This is a picture of the necklace he gave me.

When he gave it to me he told me he wanted me to have something really special. When he saw this necklace he knew it was it. As you can see the necklace is heart shaped but doesn’t make a complete heart. He told me it symbolized Cain’s heart because it’s not a complete or full heart but it is perfect to us! You can imagine how much I cried when he gave me the necklace. For Christmas he gave me the earrings that matched the necklace. Now you can see why they are both so special to me. (By the way…he’s probably going to kill me for telling everyone about this! )

We had so much fun opening Christmas presents with Cain and watching him play with his new toys. I can’t wait to do it all over again with him on Christmas morning. What a great Christmas this will be for us.

Oh…one last thing…I wanted to show you a picture of Cain’s Christmas tree. Since I put his Christmas tree in the corner of his room where I store all his toys I ended up using his toys to decorate the tree. I think it turned out really cute.
