Christmas Eve the weather was really crummy. We wanted to get out of the house and do something, but knowing the traffic around town was insane and only a mad person would head to the mall on Christmas Eve 'for fun' we just stayed home. We drank some bellinis and gorged on brie and cranberry chutney while we let Ashlynn watch some Home Alone. We baked some fresh chocolate chip cookies for Santa and let Ashlynn fill the plate and carry over his glass of milk. Thankfully bedtime went fairly smoothly and Santa stopped by early.
Kenley has been out of sorts lately, her poor gums are so swollen yet the molars have yet to cut through. Her sleep is completely hit or miss, and on Christmas morning she was up at 5am. I finaly brought her downstairs around 6 since she kept saying "cup" and about a half hour later Ashlynn was up.
We had her come downstairs to see what Santa had brought and she had a field day. She opened all our presents for us and stopped to play with a few here and there before having to be redirected to find another. Kenley wasn't a happy camper and finally I just brought some breakfast in for her so she could hang out and cheer up.
We had so much fun this season with Ashlynn "getting it" and I can't wait until Kenley is a little older and they can experience the magic together.
