This is bound to be the last year that our children are at least somewhat oblivious to the excitement of Christmas morning. When Little Guy woke and wandered into our room, I whispered "Merry Christmas!" and expected that to open up the floodgates of excitement. But all he said was, "I huuuuungry. I want bagel and cream cheese." So, off we went to the kitchen.
And, oh, was it exciting!
cousins actually gave Buddy Boy a Bla Bla doll when he was born, along with a collection of Curious George stories for Little Guy as a big brother present. Well, Little Guy loved both the gifts so very much that, without our even realizing it, he adopted Buddy Boy's Bla Bla doll as his lovey, and has slept with him every night since. For months now, Buddy Boy's been loving on that Bla Bla doll whenever he's gotten the chance, so I guess it was pretty clear to Santa that Buddy Boy needed one of his own--to keep! It's been a great success.
Mama had her traditional Christmas morning brunch, with the members of the family willing to get out on Christmas morning and come visiting. She served her best menu yet...pineapple upside down bundt cake, gingerbread, breakfast casserole, ambrosia, and sweet rolls. Yum!
Buddy Boy experienced the classic wrapping paper stuck to the bottom of your foot problem.
