Today was a great day and my heart is full. The kids woke up this morning to find that Santa made all of their dreams come true. They got their sleds and their “flying” broomsticks, Chloe got her camera and Jeffrey got his sketch paper and pencils for drawing. They played with their new things for a short time while I made us bacon, eggs and potatoes for breakfast.
Then we headed off to church for Christmas Day service and the kids’ Christmas pageant, which was Wizard of Oz themed. The kids got to stay in their jammies for that one, which was really convenient. 🙂
Then we went to my parents’ house in Oceanside where the kids opened gifts and we all ate tamales—one of my favorite Christmas Day traditions!
When we got home the kids played, I read from my new book and then Keith and Jeffrey played a game of Harry Potter Wizard Chess. (Thank you, grandma and grandpa! Jeffrey has been eyeballing that at Barnes & Noble for such a long, long time!)
I hope all of you are enjoying a wonderful day with your families. So much love to all of you. Merry Christmas!
