Christmas was great for us. We started off with Christmas Eve Mass. Getting the girls ready was entertaining and added to our entertainment. As we were putting on the dresses that Grandma and Grandpa got for them, we noticed that the security tags were still attached. Not having time to go to the store we figured we'd go to mass (the matching coats covered up the tags) then run by Macy's and get the tags removed. In the mean time, the girls had great fun talking on thier new "cell phones". At Macy's we had to hold the girls up sideways to get the clips off, but all was good, and we were soon on our way to my sisters house for the unveiling of her new billiards room and some Christmas Eve celebrating. After that it was home and to bed, so Santa could come. Santa however, was up until 4:45 in the morning wrapping presents. ZZZZZZzzzzzzz.
Christmas dawned, and though the girls didn't quite get it, they did have fun. Samantha got the raisins out of the top of her stocking and that's all she wanted. She was quite happy to walk around and eat those. Then Sonny and Cher came by for a little breakfast, to help unwrap presents, and to deliver some that Santa had left at their house for the girls.
Stacey got an IPod which she was thrilled with (really), and the girls got ice skates which we tried out today.
They slipped around on the ice quite a bit, but were slightly more stable at the end of the session than at the beginning. We'll have to do this more regularly, so they get the idea. I got a new hockey helmet (thanks Aunties) which the girls are modeling, and some wrist bling from Bill.
And now it's nap time. I hope everyone elses holiday was as nice as ours. Thanks to everyone for their part in making it great. Merry Christmas.
