Some highlights from Christmas:
-Christmas Eve we went t0 our friend Pete's place (his dad's place, actually) and had a wonderful supper. The Terrors were remarkably well-behaved, and it was a great way to relax and spend the evening. On the way home, Girl Terror was concerned that we were not going to get home and into bed soon enough, and that Santa might beat us there. We all know that the presents can't be left if you aren't asleep, so that child was in the house, down the stairs, and into bed with her eyes closed in no time at all.
-At 7:30 we woke the kids up. Weird children! We were out late, they were tired, so they slept in!
-Children are the reason for christmas morning. I am dreading the day when they leave home. Girl Terror remembers last Christmas, so she was ready to rip into the presents. Boy Terror got totally distracted by the paper. Each and every piece he ripped off, he handed to me to put into the garbage. Some pieces were no bigger than a centimetre. It took awhile for him to open his loot!
-Hubby got Girl Terror a replica T-Rex tooth for christmas. Odd choice, I know, but she was thrilled. She opened it and knew what it was right away, and then leapt up to hug Hubby, shrieking "Thank you, thank you Daddy! I love it!" It was the only gift she got that was worthy of hugs and kisses.
-We stayed home in our warm house for dinner. The turkey took forever, the kids didn't nap, but somehow it was still a wonderful day.
Wherever you were, whatever you did, I hope you had as good a day as we did.
