Last year was my first Christmas in a real home. There were so many new things to look at. A tree in the house. Red things called stockings that Mama hung up. And guess what? On Sunday morning, we found TOYS in the stockings!
The toys were fun. But I was already feeling so good at having a nice home with plenty of food to eat and a Mama and a Dad who hugged me and told me they loved me.
Last year was my first Christmas in a real home, too. I was adopted on Dec. 3, so I hadn’t been at home for long when Christmas came along. But I was already liking the good food and the toys that we were given and the quiet and the way Mama and Dad talked to me in soft voices and scratched my chin.
Here are some pictures from our first Christmas:
