Christmas has to be one the best days to be a parent. There is seriously nothing better than having a giddy child wake you up and then walking downstairs and seeing his face light up. Priceless.
As usual, last night we left Christmas cookies for Santa on the front porch (Henry is freaked out by the idea of a man he doesn't know coming into his house....he does have a point). This morning we checked the plate outside, first thing, and when Henry saw the empty plate he said "No wonder he has a big ole belly".
The kids were very lucky...they got amazing presents from family and friends. As of today (it will change) the kitchen set and shopping cart seem to be Francie's favorite and Henry has spent hours playing with the basketball game Auntie KK and Gordon got him.
This morning we had brunch with my mom and Grandma, got to talk to my dad in Nigeria and sisters in AK and NY, and skyped with Grammy Kris and Percy (the joys of technology!). Tonight Joanie went to the Blazer game, so it was just the small group of us. Can't wait for Thursday when we get to celebrate New Years with Jenny, the kids, and tons of cousins.
