Lincoln: Christmas 2008


Age: 11 months

Your first Christmas.

Favorite new toys: Leapfrog Learn & Groove Musical table, Mirror Magic book, play food
Our favorite memory: Getting your two front teeth for Christmas – we think that song was written just for you.
Did you believe in Santa? Too little this year.
Favorite Christmas movie: A Wowiebozowee Christmas
Favorite ornament: the apple (it was on the bottom of the tree – and you always managed to find it)
Favorite Christmas decoration: Our tree skirt
Favorite cookie: Ma Kauffman's Snickerdoodles
What filled your stocking: Santa forgot to fill it. Whoops.
Favorite carol: Jingle Bells - you would bounce up and down and say, "Dadadadadadada".

Dear Lincoln,

It was your first Christmas with us – and you were and are the most precious gift of the year. Your mere presence with us on Christmas morning gave us reason to celebrate your birth all over again, along with our Savior’s. You are the cutest, squishiest, and most lovable gift that found its way under our tree - several times a day.

We love you,
Mommy and Daddy
