Christmas this year was simple and and fun. Our tree stayed green and fragrant through the whole holiday. We made ambitious cookies and gave them to our friends and neighbors. Lucy is obsessed with the book and cartoon The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. We made it a mission to get her a copy and she reads it now several times a day. She and Milo keep asking if we can keep it, fearing it's a library book that will have to be returned. We listen to the audio recording in the car.
I ordered a Whole Foods meal instead of cooking this year. The littles are at the magical age of play and I just didn't want to miss a minute of it over a stove or a dish washer. We enjoyed unwrapping presents, of course. Half of them were pictures and items from around the house that Lucy had wrapped up in whatever paper she could find. One of my favorite parts of the day was a random and epic sword fight between Penn and the little ones with swords that belonged to Penn when he was a toddler.
I loved watching Lucy and Milo wake up Penn to open presents after breakfast. In 2011, it was Penn waking up baby Lucy.
I got Lucy and Milo a toy called Toymail. The kids can send and receive voice messages to approved contacts through their toy. Lucy especially has the hang of it and I love the funny messages between her and Papa and the sweet things she sends to me.
Christmas was good and delicious and delightful!
