Throughout December it felt like my favorite holiday would never come! But come it finally did, and we were all so happy! We spent Christmas Eve eating turkey noodle soup and watching A Christmas Story. Man do I love that movie!
Christmas morning was magical, as always! We all got so many fun and great presents. This was the first year that Audrey really had a grasp on what we were doing. She'd been saying for weeks that she wanted it to be Christmas so she could open her presents. I think everyone was happy when all was said and done! The rest of the day was spent eating, watching movies, doing a puzzle, and playing games. As it should be.
I didn't get any pictures of New Years, so I'll mention it here. We let the three older kids stay up until midnight with us. We brought mattresses out to the living room floor and got comfortable. We then stayed up late watching movies and eating a lot of food. By midnight most of us were pretty sleepy, or already sleeping. It was a lot of fun and I hope the kids will remember it as a fun night. New Years Day was a lazy affair. Since the mattresses were still on the living room floor we spent a good part of the day laying around, watching Iron Chef and a movie. A great way to start 2016!
