Oh what fun!

We are having a lovely day! The girls were so excited to see that Santa had been. They slept until 7.30, s0 it was quite a civilized morning! We gathered in the lounge to watch them open their stockings. Milly loved the baby doll, but then discarded her in favour of the box of After Eights sitting on the table! They both had colouring and activity books, a little bit of chocolate, underwear, toiletries (nail polish for Pip and bubble bath for Milly) and a set of paint brushes.

They had a quick bowl of cereal while I prepped the veggies and got the chickens in the oven, then we came back up to open presents. They are such good girls. There were no tears or complaints or criticisms and it has been a great day, relaxing together and enjoying the holiday. We don’t have piles of wrapping paper to throw away, which is nice! They didn’t think it was odd to have presents wrapped in pillowcases and in fabric bags. They received a couple of beautiful dresses each, books, a few toys and some handmade things. The girls gave us a beautiful framed photograph taken a couple of weeks ago. We are going to make it a tradition to have a family picture each Christmas and display them all in a card holder. I hope I remember that next year!

Dinner was delicious. We haven’t had dessert yet, as we were too full from roast chicken and all the trimmings.

Time to get back to the movie. Merry Christmas, again!
