Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

Tired parents went to bed after 4:30 (because there was a VERY vigilant Santa-catcher who purposely took a nap in the evening and would not go to sleep until almost 3 am,

I woke up to giggles and whispering between Elia and Evyianne deciding who should wake us up ( “You go!” “No! You go!” “No, you go!”), until Elia couldn’t take it any longer and walked in announcing “Mommy, wake up! It’s Christmas Morning and SANTA BROUGHT PRESENTS!!!”

Evyianne determined that cookies have been eaten by a real Santa, he also announced that reindeers are ALL of the candy-canes we had left ( though I have to take a rain check on that one. After all, Vasilisa was guarding the tree.

Elisey promptly stole two presents that were closest to him. Elia and Evyianne unwrapped every single box for everyone ( regardless if asked or not.)

Older kids are setting up the game at the Christmas dinner table right now.
I am observing and soaking it all in.

This is family.

Happy Holidays from our hearts to yours!❤️
