As hard as this is, I still want to share our awesome experience with Y the Brave (more on why we call him that later).
New Year's Day is a big deal where Y is from. So, we celebrated with a gift for each child and then driving an hour to a lake house to spend time with our Bama friends.
Soccer ball...what almost every 8 year old European boy loves to have. Y was thrilled and any smidge on it was a cause for concern. We also got a pump (which he wanted to use constantly) so we could deflate it for the trip home and he could inflate it there.
I think Ace was more excited than Liam!
Ace got a practical joke gift set-that explains the maniacal face he is making.
They don't do Santa Clause as much as they do Father Frost...nonetheless, Y knew all about Santa and thought his Santa sack gift was perfect to go with his hat!
