We had planned to get Liam another train for a while. It turned out great that his favorite movie of the last month has been "The Polar Express."

He calls this The Christmas Train.

Two things I find entertaining from Christmas.

  • Every gift Liam opens is something that then needs to be assembled or needs some space to use. After he's done removing wrapping paper on each gift he says, "let's open it up and play" to which we respond, "not now, we can play later." I'm sure everyone goes through the same thing. He really showed amazing patience for someone who never got to play with any of the hundreds of toys he opened. He just kept ripping paper, shrugging his shoulders about the fact that he was allowed to use the gift yet and then ripped more paper.
  • After everything was opened he went right back to playing with the same toys he always plays with. At the Regan house that was the two rubber WWF wrestler bathtub toys and at the Merna house it was the Duplo train set. "Thanks for letting me remove paper from these nice boxes, now back to my toys."

Liam got to see Santa three times this Christmas pre-season. The first meeting went poorly enough that we couldn't even get him close enough for a photo. The next two went better at Penfield High School and Park Place Diner in Victor.
