Yesterday was a good day. A big box of Christmas gifts arrived from Satchel's Grandma & Grandpa Cox. I quickly put the gifts aside and grabbed a utility knife. Satchel stood at the safety gate watching and whining, not quite sure why his mama was going midieval on the box. Ten minutes later the "Winterlight Castle" emerged.
Satch was so excited that he flapped his arms like little wings and I thought, "wouldn't it be wonderful if we could float from happiness".
He immediately figured out how to work the drawbridge.
He stood at the castle window and I said, "let me see your face", then he tucked his wee hand under his cheek in the sweetest way to show me his face.
He picked up his new book and read it while sitting on his drawbridge.
After the excitement settled, I bundled up my boy and took him outside for a winter wagon ride (so that I could get the trash ready for pick up).
