Today I finally got all caught up on my December Daily and finished her up. :) Another Christmas recorded.
The past two weeks have been all about illness. We’ve all taken turns with this bad, bad bug…high fevers, sore throats, coughing, body aches. The boys and Dave had been battling if for over a week and I eventually was hit by it on Christmas in the evening. This illness is the pits. It’s definitely not something I recommend.
Anyway…back to the album. On Saturday the 22nd, Isaac stayed in his jammies all day and helped me wrap presents while Dave and Andrew went to see Wreck it Ralph and do some shopping. That evening we managed to get out of house to see some Christmas lights.
On Sunday the 23rd, Andrew built a chimney out of cardboard boxes. His plan? To be our family Santa. And in order to be Santa, he needed a chimney to go down…so he built one!
On Christmas Eve the boys and Dave were experiencing enough remission from their symptoms that we were able to spend a few hours in the city seeing the Christmas sights. We went to Rockefeller Center and Grand Central Station to see our holiday hot spots.
And then Christmas morning. The culmination of the Santa story that was brewing for us all season. Andrew and I were the first ones up and Andrew went in his room to get in his Santa costume. He climbed down his chimney, arranged the presents a little around the tree and then said to me “The only way that this will make sense is if I go back up the chimney.” By then Isaac was starting to wake and I asked Andrew if he wanted Isaac to see him. “NOOOO!!!! He can’t see me!!” So Andrew scrambled back up the chimney, took off the costume and met Isaac and I in the living room. I said to them “Guys, I think I just saw Santa!” “REALLY?!?!” Andrew asks. “Yeah. Did either of you see Santa?” “NO! I didn’t see ANYTHING!” says Andrew.
Turns out…the whole point…was that Isaac have a Santa come and arrange the presents…without Isaac seeing. :) And so that is exactly what happened. :)
And for the other Christmas pages I added some photos and a little bit about each of our Christmases.
And that’s a wrap! :)
