Elation

Connor, who is 19 months old, shows us old hands how to appreciate a Christmas gift.  I think his reaction is priceless.

His Grandma Sandy and her friend Donnie shared their Christmas with Mike and his family at brunch today, and the two families exchanged gifts early because there are so many different branches of the family for whom time must be scheduled.  I’m sure they were very gratified by Connor’s reaction.  Also Mike did a great job in capturing Connor’s expression at the exact moment he gets his first taste of the joy of receiving a Christmas gift.  Reactions such as Connor’s help explain the axiom that “it is more blessed to give than receive,” though he looks like he thinks receiving is pretty special too.
