Hope your Christmas morning was full of fun and laughter and lots of goodies!!
Henry woke us up at 6:40, which I wasn't quite ready for considering I finally had to take some Nyquil at 2 a.m. because I was coughing and couldn't sleep. He and Marc went out to check the stockings and I slept another half hour. I went out, stuck the casserole in the oven, and we played a couple of games of Jenga - a family gift Santa had left - and then declared it late enough for starting in on presents (i.e. the sun was just about up and Harper was starting to rustle).
Henry raked in a couple of Nerf guns, a couple of Bionicle toys, a couple of Lego sets, his taekwondo blacks and ssahng jeol bongs (nunchukas), and a few other goodies. Harper got a Fisher Price crawl-through-walk-around gym thing, some Peek-a-Blocks, a ball tumble thingy, and some soft toys and rattles. I got print-outs of what is on the way to me (Marc, ever the procrastinator!) - a cable release for my camera, a 50mm 1.8 lens, and new wool (plaid!!) Birkenstocks, as well as a book I've been dying to read ever since I found the lady's blog a couple of years ago, a cool glass wine wall art thing and a frame with our names lasered into the wood. Marc got a bunch of geek stuff - t-shirt, sweatshirt, mirror thingamabob, a couple of Xbox games, some chocolate, and a hand-held ham radio that he's been hinting at in a big way (emails with the words XMAS IDEA!!!!!!).
All in all, a great morning.
Henry's happily going through his toys one by one, Harper finally dropped off to La La Land about an hour ago, Marc's digging into his radio manual, and I'm off to read my book. We've officially gone to our own corners.
Hope you are all having a fun, peaceful, family-centered day!
