We enjoyed a quiet Christmas this year. It is very different being so far away from our extended families. But I must admit - I had a fabulous Christmas.
Jane was my magical one. She kept the true meaning of Christmas tucked in her pocket. She wrote a note to thank Santa for the presents. She wondered how Santa would know that she needed a new bike without training wheels. She kept saying the this was the best Christmas ever!! What more could a mother need to hear:)
Tobe was super duper excited about EVERYTHING!!! He had opened a few of his presents under the tree early in the month so every night he would ask if he could open "Mack" again. The wait nearly killed him. Every time he'd open something he'd say "NO WAY!!!! Aly say 'YES WAY!!!'" Aly never did cooperate but he didn't care. He "yoved" everything he got.
All Aly wanted was make-up. Give Aly make-up and dress-ups and she couldn't be happier. Santa held her breath, closed her eyes, and gave Aly make-up. Luckily it didn't last long. Nail polish all over the bathroom, eye shadow on her lips and lip gloss on her eyes. Chapstick used as candy...you get the picture. It's all gone but served its purpose. Aly was happy on Christmas morning.
I hope you all had a magical Christmas!!!
