And the rest of our Christmas went similarly well - plenty of excitement and lots of smiles. Here are the photo highlights:
Sash got lots of help opening gifts, which had the unfortunate effect of teaching her that everybody needed her help opening their gifts as well
Sam was rather excited about receiving the complete Calvin and Hobbes Treasury
The boys refused to let us remove the tags from their new coonskin caps... the tags facilitated the crossed eyes
Admittedly, we did have a couple of Sasha melt-downs... the parts of the day when other people got to open gifts were challenging.
Now that is one happy girl in one completely wrecked living room!
Christmas dinner on Mommy's new placesettings! Note Ben's very festive bagel-and-cream-cheese dinner. Fa la la la la.
