Regardless of the circumstances, Santa was good to us all this 12 months. I’m glad he was in a position to get the vaccine early as a result of it could have been tremendous unhappy if he’d needed to cancel Christmas too!
It rained all.day.lengthy. (poured, really) so we let the boys open a present early!
They bought this AirFort from us, which was an enormous hit. It’s large enough for youths and adults to suit inside. You join a 20″ field fan and the fort inflates with air in seconds. It type of hovers on the bottom. See it in motion right here.
My hair has been in a ponytail about 99% of this 12 months, so I used to be glad for an excuse to provide it a curl!
We get pleasure from slightly occasion unfold so Christmas would really feel additional particular. I made my mother’s Sherry Cheese Dip – a Christmas custom. And a few toothpick appetizers. (The boys ate rolls, crackers, shrimp, and cucumbers.)
We missed my household lots this 12 months, particularly sharing Christmas with Avery and Emerson. I believe that is the primary Christmas in 38 years I haven’t seen them!
Santa’s Go to
Santa left me a be aware with some deets about his supply, so I may share them with you all.
He stated he got here by means of the chimney within the basement as a result of the highest flooring was blocked by the gasoline fire. He should have used the pillows as a touchdown pad.
Santa introduced the boys this Farmhouse Kitchen! He left it down within the mudroom as a result of it was “too huge for the chimney” he stated. We additionally discovered bits of carrot down right here. I ponder if a reindeer snuck in whereas he was placing the ending touches on the meeting?
He additionally let me know in his be aware he was very proud to have discovered the Radio Flyer trike free in a purchase nothing group. Santa believes in recycling every time doable, ya know! It was in nice situation – you’ll have thought the elves tightened each screw.
The boys slept till 7 (thank goodness they’re good sleepers) and we loved espresso + items all morning.
Regardless of his face, Birch was THRILLED together with his “bike”
I used to be thrilled that the Christmas jammies match him yet one more 12 months! They have been just a bit brief : )
Birch bought numerous play meals, vehicles, books, lingerie (!) and artwork provides.
And he gave us a fairly candle that he made in class!
Mazen bought ear pods on this enormous field – ha! Plus skis, a Lego, a Lego ninja ebook, a disco ball, a protected, a pockets, and extra.
One final reward!
The Elf on the Shelf had a be aware from Santa that stated their final reward was within the mudroom as a consequence of logistical causes. They raced down there to seek out the kitchen. Whereas this reward was slightly extra for Birch, Mazen was excited too. They performed with all of it weekend!
The most effective function is the light-up sink and range! They make noise too.
Play-doh and lollipops!
And Christmas breakfast!
We spent the day time alternating between the Peloton bike, napping, tidying, and enjoying!
I can’t bear in mind the final time I wore a gown. Whereas we solely driving over to T’s dad and mom, who’re a part of our Quaranteam, it felt like an additional special day.
We opened just a few items and had John’s well-known Christmas pizza stuffed with beef, spinach and cheese!
