So, in case anyone can`t tell... I`m not quite on top of entering pictures and words and not having everything run together. Sorry!! Here is Christmas at the libutti house. It was our first Christmas at home with the kids- Jackson is just old enough to understand what Christmas is this year "Jesus's Birthday!" Thats RIGHT Jackson :o)
Naturally he had no problem understanding the whole Santa clause and presents part. He decorated his own tree the same day I decorated mine! Of course all or his ornaments came from the bottom half of my tree...
At Walmart Jackson very quickly took to Santa. Jumped on his lap and without hesitating said "I love you so much Santa!" When Santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas, he didn`t even have to think "A pink dress for my sister Lucy" I cried, how sweet and unselfish!!! I won`t hope for that every year.
I had my reservations about a Christmas Eve visit from Santa (Matt's adorable brother Johnny) because Jackson is very smart- and it is hard to trick him! When "Santa" strolled into the room to surprise him, Jackson looked at him, cocked his head to the side and said "Actually... that is Johnny!" John, you`re a champ!! We got some pretty good pictures of the kids with Santa`s helper. Jackson wanted nothing to do with him- it freaked him out a little I think to see John dressed that way. Lucy loved him, and even smiled for her picture!
Oh, and the dress Lucy is wearing in the very top picture and her picture with Uncle Santa WAS MINE when I was a baby! Crazy, right?
