My house looks like a Little People factory exploded in it, we have eight dozen sugar cookies to work our way through, plus all the chocolate Chris stuffed in my stocking and half a chocolate cake from Christmas Eve dinner. Mia is so overwhelmed by the pile of new toys (and I swear we were very conservative! Well, ish.) that she totally forgot herself and consumed actual food (and a piece of chocolate, but hey, Christmas) and we haven't even collected the grandparent loot yet. As an extra-special bonus, nobody has vomited, which puts this Christmas head and shoulders above last year no matter what happens.
And you know, the first Christmas that your child understands is one of life's truly great moments.
Wishing a wonderful December 25th to you and yours. Tune in tomorrow for pictures, and just wait until you get a load of the sparkly red shoes.
