The bare necessities of life will come to you...

For Christmas this year, Danielle and I decided to not get each other gifts. She broke her end of the deal though and picked me up something anyway [not that I mind!]. Well the gift she got me was some Disney movies knowing that not only do I love them but it would benefit the kids as well. The best part was that one of them was The Jungle Book. I absolutely love that movie! Growing up, it was the one kid's movie that my dad would always watch with us kids. He always claimed it was his favorite movie. Well when it was released from the Disney Vault I begged and pleaded with Danielle to have it and of course she spoiled me. Today I watched it with Trenton and we sat on the living room floor together, him sitting in my lap leaning back against my chest. I wrapped a blanket around us and then I put my arms around him. It was such an amazing moment in my very short tenure as a dad. He is such an amazing blessing in my life, and I could not possibly imagine life without him. I love being dad.
