My daughter was 1 last Christmas and my favorite image of that holiday season is a photo of Ruby with an empty Fisher-Price box. It captured a common Christmas experience. She had just opened lots of presents, but there she was in the kitchen entertained by an empty box.

However, she got the meaning of the holiday. We celebrated at my mother-in-law's house, and Ruby really enjoyed her time with cousins. They live more than 5 hours away and we don't see them often, except for FaceTime. She constantly followed her 3-year-old cousin around and gave lots of hugs.
