Christmas Morning 2017

We had a wonderful white Christmas morning after all, from the quick (late-ish) start, to the very finish. Santa came and delighted everyone’s hearts. Even Tonka, who was caught opening a present beneath the tree (which turned out to actually be for her.) Bastien got Hadley a massaging neck wrap, of which we were all jealous. Mazzy felt a little slighted, which she indicated by aggressively trying to steal everyone’s presents the entire time. The kids both picked out a snowman necklace for me at the school store (unbeknownst to one another). And there was the magic moment when Jim opened his Nintendo Switch from me. Please enjoy that moment yourself. Big surprises all around, and lots and lots and lots of joy.
