Yesterday was Christmas and boy was it merry! We are incredibly blessed and we had a wonderful day. I started hearing little excited voices around 5:30am and found both girls in the bathroom talking about stockings. We explored around the tree for a bit while I made coffee and cocoa, then I allowed the girls to gently wake up Daddy.
We must have been very good this year because we had a lot of gifts to open. Santa brought Shyla the game she "ordered" called Spot It and brought Harper her requested pink scooter! Also, Halloween costumes were a huge hit to add to the dress-up box and I'm sure Santa got a ganga on them!
Next we ended up at Grandma and Grandpa's house for breakfast and more gifts! We sang Happy Birthday to Jesus with a loaf of blueberry bread! Grandma wins the prize this year for giving the most noisy gifts: recorders for all the kids, a pogo-stick that squeaks with each jump, and a music player for dancing!
Lastly we went to Grandma Barbara's house and visited with lots of family. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by more aunts, uncles, and cousins than we can keep straight!
And, finally, a nap in the car on the way home. Whew! What a day! Merry, merry Christmas to all. I hope your heart is as happy as mine.
