Elijah's first Christmas home




Here are a few pictures from Elijah's first Christmas home, surrounded by love, enjoying celebrating Christ's birth. What a Christmas!








From baking a birthday cake for Jesus,










Reading the Christmas story,








Waiting patiently to open presents,









Taking time to hug the furry children,









Helping Papa,









And Teddy, too,









to the beautiful extended family celebrations at both grandmas' homes,



























































It will be a Christmas for our treasured memories.







The significance of the moment wasn't lost on anyone within earshot at Gram Bourke's when Philip proudly announced that Elijah should go first since it was his first Christmas home. There wasn't a dry eye to be had.




His first Christmas home, his first Christmas ever.


His first of many to come.




Merry Christmas everyone.

That is SO special. We felt the same way as we celebrated Max's first Christmas but you spelled it out so beautifully in your post. Merry Christmas!
