And so it went. I can't believe it's already been three days. Christmas was perfectly enjoyable. Is 4:20 a.m. too early for peeking down the stairs to check on the stockings and milk & cookies? Apparently not, as the children were BOTH awake. They tried and tried to sleep again and only the girlie succeeded. For ten minutes. So up we were, carols playing in the background, welcoming the predawn hours with stockings and smiles.
Matching many more years will I be able to get away with this? Because forever would not be long enough. After the presents and the breakfast we laced up, invited the uncles and headed to the pond.

Christmas dinner was courtesy of my mother in law. Another gift exchange, where I got every gift I asked for...last year. Which made me happy, although not happy enough to leap into the air, unlike some of us....

Here is a boy celebrating the receipt of a gift from his very own Most Wanted List. Now I do not only get to listen to replays of pretend hockey goals from NHL 2006 but now I can also replay phony football games courtesy of Madden 2006. It is beyond me how he can figure these games out. I'm all about the instruction books. Probably why I suck.

Why do I feel like I've been shortchanged, that this school vacations isn't quite long enough? We are thoroughly enjoying our lazy mornings and game playing evenings. I'm not at all anxious to give it up. Until tomorrow, because maybe I'm a pessimist, but they've got to start arguing again sometime, right?

Sounds like you are having a wonderful time. I hope it is as nice when my kids are older.
