On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, we were invited to two big extended family events. We decided to pass them up this year to avoid the risk of getting Dannie sick. Just too big of a risk when she is so young.
Instead, we decided to have our Christmas at home in the evening when Maddie got up from her nap. First we made some popcorn for a snack. She loves popcorn!
Then we got to present opening. Maddie got some Elmo stuff and helped open Dannie’s presents.
Maddie liked bringing Dannie her gifts. It was really sweet.
Dannie played happily while we opened gifts.
I got a food saver (to vacuum seal food) a non-stick pan (because we got a stainless steel pans recently) and a gorgeous necklace to represent Chuck, me, Maddie and Dannie. You can see a picture of it here. And if we have more kids, we can add on to it. And no, they aren’t our birthstones…we have an unattractive combination of birthstones. 🙂
Overall we had a great Christmas at home with the girls! It’s going to be so fun in the years to come when we can leave Santa cookies and sing Christmas music together! Maddie already loves “Jingle Bells!”
…only two more Christmases to write about! 🙂
