The first morning that Christopher appeared, he said hello to the boys with their Lego's.
A close up of the Christopher the first morning he appeared.
The following photos are just random days of Christopher's visit:
Christopher sleeping on the toilet paper roll in the boys bathroom. He made himself a little bed.
This was one of the boys favorites. They just giggled over this one.

Attempting to eat one of the boys chocolates from their advent calendars.

It looks like he's been fishing all night. He has plenty of goldfish in his basket next to him

We were in the process of painting the living room. Christopher thought he'd paint a message on the wall for the boys. The boys didn't want us to paint over his message. They were a little upset when we finally did.
Christopher's last morning with us on Christmas Eve. He decided to go out with a bang. He took the boys stockings down and put a pair of their underwear in the stockings place instead. This was a big hit with the boys.

I let Christopher sit with Wyatt to watch a little TV before putting him next to the cookies, so he can ride back to the North Pole with Santa.
I know the boys were a little sad to see Christopher leave, they really enjoyed him and his surprises every morning. I looked forward to seeing the anticipation on the boys faces when they would wake up in search of Christopher. However, I'm a bit glad that he's gone, he wore me out at times. But, it IS only one month a year, and this won't last forever, I'll be wishing for these moments one day. So I'm going to push through being tired and press on for my boys to have memories to last a lifetime.
See you next year Christopher!
