Christmas with Aaron Part Three

He was content with his stocking full of candy and his family surrounding him.



He was pretty sure Christmas was now over except for a bunch of family coming later to visit.

He was sitting on the floor talking and playing and oblivious.

Then Elijah turned on the train.

Choo Chooing its way around the track under the tree in the other room.



Aaron KNOWS trains.

Trains are pure happiness to Aaron.  They represent everything wonderful and magical in this world outside of sheds and orphan buildings.

His keen little ears perked up.... What was that?  Granddaddy's train?  

Here??

He pulled himself up and walked with wonder into the living room... 


Mama come look!


Papa do you see??


Elijah?  Ben?



THAT'S SO COOL!!!

Do you see?? Do you see??


AND..... GRANDDADDY'S TRUCK.... DO YOU SEE??



FOR AARON???  Papa!!  Mama!!  Aaron's truck??


Aaron can help open it.






Totally oblivious to all the presents under the tree ... focused only on the train and the truck!!









Pure joy!!

Utterly content.

His brothers.... not so much....

.....stay tuned for Part Four in which pure mayhem ensues....

  2. Thank you so much for continuing the story! I LOVE it- tears every time I see that joy on Aaron's face- just perfect! Our little ones had their first "real" Christmas this year, but of course they really had no idea what was going on... so it is so fun to see the wonder and delight on Aaron's face!
