It has been a totally relaxing, totally family Christmas. Except for one friend and her son coming to exchange gifts yesterday, it has been just us four, and that's how we wanted it. We took it really easy yesterday, had a nice dinner together, bathed the kids, watched Elf and tucked in. Well, Daddy and Mommy stayed up doing elvish things like wrapping presents and stuffing stockings. Matty was so excited that he woke up at 4:00 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep. At precisely 7:00, he woke Molly, marched her into our room and together they shouted, "IT'S CHRISTMAS!"
After their presents were all opened, and we'd eaten breakfast, we just went about the business of playing. It's been a fun, easy, Christmas day...just the way I like it.
