I hope this week after Christmas Monday finds you well. We have been in a sort of time warp for a over a week now. Dad was home, school was out and if you asked me what day it was I had to check my phone before answering. It was wonderful. I really hate sending the hubby back to work after having him home for 9 day but at least this week will be a short one.
I thought it would be nice to give a little holiday recap on the blog today.
Let’s start with Christmas eve.
Christmas eve was celebrated with Russ’ parents. We met up at their house for dinner, then went to Christmas eve service.
The next day we woke up and I put our traditional breakfast right in the oven. We always make cinnamon rolls of some kind. This year the girls chose orange rolls.
. After breakfast and what felt like FOREVER (to them), we finally let them open up their gifts
“Bob” had the idea to leave them elf dolls.
And hearing this girl scream and jump around the house yelling “I got my Christmas wish” when she opened her panda brought tears to my eyes.
Marissa brought out her homemade presents that she made in secret and wrapped in shoe boxes. What a huge heart that lovely young woman has. She made me a pot holder, Russ an ornament and gave Emily a pouch full of her change she collects.
Next up was lunch and more presents with my parents.
How was your Christmas?
