When we came home from my mom's house we each chose a gift to unwrap. Rachel did a great job unwrapping the book we got her. I'm pretty sure she didn't mean to unwrap the present--she just wanted to eat the paper. She had a ball!
We then read the Christmas story again and acted it out. We didn't get costumes out this year because Andrew wanted to get it over with so that he could go to bed. I made him take some pictures first though. We all kind of dressed Christmasy today: Andrew in red, me in green, and Rachel in a cute little outfit that Sister Elder gave us.
You'll notice Rachel is leaning in a lot of the pictures. That's her new thing. I think she thinks she looks cuter when she's leaning.
I'm now just up waiting for Santa to get here. Andrew isn't feeling well again so he went to bed and Rachel was in bed by 11:00 again tonight--looks like we're on a roll. I just finished embroidering her stocking so now Santa can do his job.
Spoiler warning: If you believe in Santa, skip the next paragraph.
Andrew went to bed before even filling my stocking. I filled my own stocking this year. How incredibly lame is that? I mean, I already knew what was going in my stocking but somehow I think I would be able to pretend it was magical if I didn't have to stuff it myself. Where's the magic anymore?
Spoiler warning off.
