Otherwise, it was all lovely.
Sam got to be one of Santa’s elves this year, which was really cool. I was not completely pleased with his stocking stuffing technique, but he made up for it with enthusiasm. He was just about the cutest elf I could have hoped for. He refused to go to bed until after he helped, which was a problem, because Jack took a loooooong time to fall asleep.
We had a very mellow day. We didn’t go anywhere. No one visited. We barely even talked to anyone on the phone. We cozied up, the five of us, and played and ate and napped and had a lovely, chill Christmas.
Our Christmas was all about video games and board games. So many games. So much fun!
I love that photo of my tiny assassin. I’m not going to name names, but Quinn wasn’t the person who accidentally shot the dog between the eyes with that dart gun. I’m not going to name names, but his has an “x” in it and it rhymes with Schmalex.
The only disappointment of Christmas is that we weren’t able to take down our tree today as I’d hoped, which means I have to suffer one more day of Christmas spirit, which I am officially done with.
I hope you all had a wonderful day as well! Now, onward to other things! Like all the dentist appointments I scheduled for this week! Yay! (Not.)
