It’s been a good Christmas Day. Every Christmas Day is good, because we get to celebrate the birth of our Savior. But today was remarkably cooler than recent ones of memory.
It was a day of traditions. Early morning rising to read the Christmas Story.
Opening presents and being silly.
Cinnamon rolls for breakfast and baking sweets.
Two hours of assembling your presents.
Followed by a full day of watching you playing together.
Making our own pizzas for lunch.
Mom says she had fun teaching you how to play your new DS.
I think she just used it as an excuse to have a little fun herself. 🙂
We even had time to add a new tradition…that promises to become an annual one. You liked the first course of vegetables and bread with cheese fondue…but not as much as the fruits and “mallemows” with chocolate.
It was definitely fun watching you try something new.
And there’s nothing better than a belly full of chocolate to cuddle up and watch our favorite Christmas movies together before bedtime.
It was indeed a Christmas to remember. I’m thankful for the miracle of the birth of Christ, and I’m thankful for days like today. I’m gonna miss this some day.
