i have to say this was the best christmas ever.
i worked late and was exhausted all week, we were up half the night re-vamping the play area with chalkboard paint and a gorgeous new play table, and i had horrible nightmares that the kids hated it and all of their toys were broken…
THEN, my dad called me around nine christmas morning and we were all still snoozing! i jumped up and started the chore of dragging the girls out of bed. we all ran down the steps to find a completely re-vamped play area and gifts spilling out everywhere! mae’s first reaction, “how did the toys get on there (the table)?” they tore into their gifts and uncovered legos and transformers and lalaloopsys and paper jamz and hex bug worlds, and MORE! alizah even got the skateboard she’s been dreaming of for months. the true christmas miracle? there wasn’t a stitch of clothing in any of the boxes!
i hope everyone experienced at least one christmas miracle this year ;)
mae picked out lemon cookies for santa, and they were DELICIOUS!
and of course, reindeer food…
