First Snow & Christmas

We had some real snow for the first time on Sunday afternoon. It didn't accumulate too much, but enough for the kids to admire. Thomas was very excited that now it must be Christmas. We explained to him that those two things were not synonymous. We thought he understood...

Now, the next day... Thomas didn't get enough sleep and woke up at 5:30am (about an hour earlier than normal). He came into our room and was kind of grouchy. He eventually headed downstairs, at which point he burst into tears. He came back to our room crying, "There are no presents. Santa forgot to bring presents."

Sometimes it's hard not to smile... It was really quite devastating to our little guy, though.
