As previously mentioned, Brian and I had a bit of a rough night on Christmas Eve.
So perhaps this Christmas will go down in our memories as “the grumpiest we have ever felt on a holiday?”
But, we did pull it together after nap time!
Joseph was absolutely FRANTIC to go out and see his presents,
and Isaac was wailing “why didn’t Santa come?!!!” Until I explained that Santa HAD come, Isaac just didn’t see him. At which point he wandered out to the living room, confused, and sat by me for a while.
But Joseph plunged right in!
He was thrilled with everything!
(He REALLY wanted that NRG Jay- some microscopic Lego Ninja that I pray I won’t vacuum up for a few months at least.)
And soon Isaac couldn’t resist the pull of the wind up train
and his much-coveted blue airplane!
(which is 100% of the time what he said he was asking Santa for.)
Every Christmas Brian says “Ooooooh my gaaaaaawwwsh” all drawn out and SO gross over and over throughout the morning. Just to make me laugh.
It is also worth noting that Isaac calls stockings “Walkie-stockings” this year.
And that Joseph’s favorite song is “The Little Drummer Boy”, which he has been having me sing to him at bedtime.
I only took a few pictures this year, so that I could really see the fun with my own two eyes.
And despite my grumpiness, it was truly a magical Christmas!
(especially after naps)
