Our son, Sawyer, is now almost two-and-a-half years old. Since he was a wee babe, his favorite thing about the event is the big Macy's Star. Our generally energetic and bubbly boy got quiet and more serious as he took in the crowds and the music, and gazed with big eyes at the Macy's star. I wonder what was going on in his little head as he took everything in? Perhaps he was a little overwhelmed, maybe even a bit overstimulated? Maybe just amazed that so many people would gather together under a big bright star and get crazy with Christmas Carols?
I love this image of him because, first, his favorite part - the star - is behind him, illuminating his world. Second, the expression on his face - it is evident he is taking it all in. Soaking it up. Being touched by the magic that music can be during the Holiday Season. Oh how I love my little boy!
I hope everyone else had an enjoyable weekend! If you're not feeling in the Holiday Spirit yet, just crank up some of your favorite Christmas tunes and it won't be long before you'll be tapping your toes and letting your heart sing ;)
