Christmas Day was everything we hoped it would be. Myla couldn’t wait for us to come downstairs, and came herself. She climbed up on the chair arm and glanced in her stocking. Her eyes got wide and she said “Santa did come!” Both the girls got bean bag chairs, which in the past few days have been everything from a train to a boat. They got all sorts of wonderful toys that they haven’t stopped playing with. In fact, I bet you didn’t know, Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem on Santa’s train. Well, they traveled to the kitchen tonight anyway.
Today, I got off work early so that I could spend some more time with the girls while Johnny slept. Last Thursday, we got, oh, eight inches of snow. And today, we did this.
The park was still pretty covered in snow on the ground, but the slide, swings and climbing places were clear and dry. And since it was almost 60 outside, we took full advantage before the wind drove us inside. It was a nice change of scenery, and – I don’t know if you can tell from the pictures – a pretty good time.
