Day 25!!!


Zach enjoyed opening his presents on Christmas morning. 

When asked what was his favorite thing about Christmas, he replied “I love to open presents.  It is cool and really fun.”  He also loved going to Branson, “Nissouri” and watching the Dutton’s.  Spending the night at Nana’s was another fun part of Christmas to him.
