Christmas: time to give

I thought I would put my nostalgic read of Space Vampire aside to mention our Christmas this year.  It really is a side note, because, the overly involved mother that I am, could not pause a moment to take a single photo on Christmas day.  Sure we have a minute or two video of Adella's reaction to Santa's visit, but that's it!  I just scrambled the kids together today to snap a quick memory photo of what they got! 

Adella has been so excited for Santa to visit, and was actually quite put-out when she found out he wasn't coming to visit, but would leave gifts without saying a word to her.  She was alright with it though on Christmas morning when she got the "animals" she had written to Santa about!  She knew Santa would bring them, because she sent him a letter and received a response from the jolly man himself.  Mom was put-out it wasn't a handwritten response, but I suppose Claus has no time at all during December.

The animals Adella asked for were actually Calico Critters and she loves playing with them (at the kitchen table because there are quite a number of itsy-bitsy pieces that Zack would be all too willing to taste-test). 

Zack loves the pirate ship Santa left him, and actually plays well with it.  He also loves the soft dinos Santa left in his stocking. 

Zane and I have had quite a lot of fun ourselves, playing with toys, cooking, reading, and gorging on the Christmas delicacies we lack throughout the year.  Even the candy Santa left behind for us is going quick... ugh!  Just thinking about it makes me groan mentally. 

Sure was a great experience, celebrating this wonderful time of year in our new home!  We look forward to all the moments we get to share here!  Thank you all for your kind Christmas wishes!  Hope all is well with your families and that this new year brings joy!
