Since K, C, and J were with their dad on Christmas, we had "Christmas" a little late. We had it on Saturday, the 29th and, with the exception of Santa not coming, we treated it just like any other Christmas day.
We began with our traditional Christmas Crepes. We eat strawberry crepes with whipped topping on Christmas morning. K loves the whipped topping.
This series of pictures is so fun! I was so excited about this gift...mostly for the packaging. I took a bunch of fives and taped them together, then rolled them up, opened up a tissue box, and glued the box back together. I had put a few tabs up through the top: "Pull here," "keep pulling", etc..
J opened it for us...Ping pong paddles? What? K immediately asked if we got a net too. When we said yes....and pointed to the "media room," they ran in there to see....
Then, we were going to have "Christmas" dinner with my sister and her family....paches and frijoles negros, and plantains, etc....but I cheat and buy the paches and we couldn't get them at the same place as usual. We decided to use the gift cards my best friend had given us to CiCi's and go out instead. Best. Decision. Ever. It was so relaxing. The kids loved being there and no big prep or clean-up. Just eating together. I don't love the pizza really, but this time it was so worth it. And the kids absolutely loved it.
I am so blessed. Food. Family. Gifts. Fun. What a great day! Blessed indeed!
