This Christmas was our first Christmas by ourselves and only our second at home (though does the first one really count if I can't remember it much due to having brain surgery just before it, and I didn't even post about it?) I couldn't wait for the break to start! Charlie would be out of school and Keith would be off of work... it was going to be great.
Christmas morning was great. It always is with little kids.We opened presents, video chatted with my folks in Ghana, and played with games and toys that Santa brought and the gifts we gave each other.
They get so excited with little things. You should have seen Charlie's face when he found green olives in his stocking (his favorite)! It has been tradition to put olives in stockings but it has always been black, never green. Charlie looked as if he was going to burst with excitement and exclaimed "Santa knows me REALLY well!"
Santa even put a few things in Molly's stocking. :)
