The morning started out early. Big wee one got up to go to the bathroom around 5:45 am and I thought for sure she was going to be ready to get to presents, but she surprised me and went back to bed. I believe it was around 7:00 am that I heard right outside our door in a LOUD whisper, "Mommy, Santa CAME!"
I replied with a, "SANTA CAME?" and Paul instantly popped up with a "Santa CAME!" He jumped out of bed, while I pursuaded Big wee one to come crawl in bed with me. Around 7:15, she just couldn't take it anymore and I let her and Paul wake Little wee one.
The looks on their faces melted our hearts. This was by far the BEST Christmas with the girls thus far. Big wee one was beyond THRILLEd with the selection of Barbies that Santa brought her and Little wee one played with (yet another) new baby and a baby carrier. She opened her presents, but Big wee one took over her present opening after awhile; Little wee one was just way too busy with her baby.
Paul got me a new book and a kitchen timer, and we got him some shirts and a new video. We finished the day off at Mimi & G-pa's house with dinner...the yummiest, magazine perfect turkey ever. We gorged ourselves on food, wine and pie, vegged on the couch and then somehow forced ourselves to bring our tired children home around 7 pm.
Thank you wee ones for such an amazing holiday! You two light up our lives with your wonder and excitement. We love you so much and can't wait for every new moment we get to share with your threw your eyes. Merry Christmas!
