Christmas came and went this year. It was a low key Christmas and we were inside so much leading up to it. That's to be expected with a newborn. Boonie was SO excited that Santa was coming. He followed the Google Santa tracker and we all went outside to see if we could see Rudolph's nose shining in the sky. Marae was excited too. We set out cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. Marae wanted to leave the chimney open so Santa could come in. But for some reason she had to lick it first... such a strange child.
The kids must have been good this year!!
Adelyn got up that night around 3 and wanted to stay up and play. So I took her out under the Christmas tree so she could look at the lights. It was a magical and sweet hour with my baby early Christmas morning. I love her.
The kids woke up early as usual and we super excited to see if Santa came. We did stocking first, ate breakfast, and then opened the rest of the gifts.
With their Santa gifts:
Someone was certainly excited to get a remote control MONSTER TRUCK when all he asked for was a monster truck. We took it over to the cultural hall at the church to drive around the next day.
Marae got a mermaid guitar. I think Santa's elves weren't really thinking of an age appropriate gift with this one. We sent it back to the north pole and she was none the wiser.
We woke up to a white Christmas. It was so magical. It snowed ALL DAY. We bundled up and went out to play in. We loved it. It was so nice to enjoy especially since we didn't have to worry about driving anywhere.
Merry Christmas everyone. Santa brought me a new computer which I was delighted with.
