That was the time that the children woke up and decided that sleep was for chumps.
By 6:00 I stopped pretending that I was asleep and we woke up David.
Christmas had begun!
Santa left some of his cookie.
Lily's gifts all have green bows.
Rebecca's have red bows.
The stockings were full!
Rebecca likes to empty her stocking slowly, savoring each item. (Notice the handsome cinematographer in the background.)
Lily likes to dump hers on the floor.
My mom sent the girls some of their favorite gifts. Handmade American Girl clothes, including matching jammies for the girls and their dolls.
The girls love them! The craftsmanship is gorgeous.
Check out this coat. My mom used a scarf to make it.
These princess gowns have matching gloves and are fully lined! Amazing!
Remember those fairy dolls that the girls were hoping that Santa would bring?
Here they are! They are so lovely.
This gift from David was my favorite!
We had a perfectly lovely day. The kids played, David napped and I puttered. It was a day of jammies and snuggles and comfort.
I hope that Christmas brought peace and joy to all who celebrate and a day of movies and Chinese food to those who don't.
Merry Christmas and let's bring on 2010!
