In spite of the scenarios, Santa was excellent to all of us this year. I’m happy he had the ability to get the vaccine early since it would have been incredibly unfortunate if he ‘d needed to cancel Christmas too!
It drizzled all.day.long. (put, really) so we let the kids open a present early!
They got this AirFort from us, which was a substantial hit. It’s huge enough for kids and grownups to fit within. You link a 20 ″ box fan and the fort pumps up with air in seconds. It sort of hovers on the ground. See it in action here
My hair has actually remained in a ponytail about 99% of this year, so I was happy for a reason to provide it a curl!
We delight in a little celebration spread out so Christmas would feel additional unique. I made my mother’s Sherry Cheese Dip— a Christmas custom. And some toothpick appetisers (The kids consumed rolls, crackers, shrimp, and cucumbers.)
We missed my household a lot this year, particularly sharing Christmas with Avery and Emerson. I believe this is the very first Christmas in 38 years I have not seen them!
Santa’s Check out
Santa left me a note with some deets about his shipment, so I might share them with you all.
He stated he came through the chimney in the basement since the leading flooring was obstructed by the gas fireplace. He should have utilized the pillows as a landing pad.
Santa brought the kids this Farmhouse Kitchen Area! He left it down in the mudroom since it was “too huge for the chimney” he stated. We likewise discovered little bits of carrot down here. I question if a reindeer snuck in while he was putting the completing discuss the assembly?
He likewise let me understand in his note he was really happy to have actually discovered the Radio Leaflet trike totally free in a buy absolutely nothing group. Santa thinks in recycling whenever possible, ya understand! It remained in excellent condition– you would have believed the fairies tightened up every screw.
Christmas Early Morning
The kids slept up until 7 (thank goodness they are excellent sleepers) and we delighted in coffee + presents all early morning.
In spite of his face, Birch was DELIGHTED with his “bike”
I was delighted that the Christmas jammies fit him another year! They were simply a little brief: )
Birch got great deals of play food, trucks, books, underwears (!) and art materials.
And he provided us a quite candle light that he made in school!
Mazen got ear pods in this substantial box– ha! Plus skis, a Lego, a Lego ninja book, a disco ball, a safe, a wallet, and more.
One last present!
The Fairy on the Rack had a note from Santa that stated their last present remained in the mudroom due to logistical factors. They raced down there to discover the cooking area. While this present was a bit more for Birch, Mazen was thrilled too. They had fun with all of it weekend!
The very best function is the light-up sink and range! They make sounds too.
Play-doh and lollipops!
And Christmas breakfast!
We invested the day time rotating in between the Peloton bike, napping, cleaning, and playing!
I can’t keep in mind the last time I used a gown. While we just driving over to T’s moms and dads, who become part of our Quaranteam, it seemed like an additional unique celebration.
We opened a couple of presents and had John’s popular Christmas pizza filled with beef, spinach and cheese!
I hope Santa was excellent to you and the only coal from your weekend was a Beautycounter charcoal bar << 3
