Merry Christmas to you all.
I managed to space out the whole gift opening frenzy over two days... Christmas Eve with my mom and brother and the girls and Christmas morning with gifts from the other grandparents and the girls' father. Much more enjoyable to space it out. The girls weren't overloaded, overstimulated, overtired, over.... unbearable. They went to bed at a decent time, and are in a good mood today. Yeah for me.
We had our traditional Christmas meal at my mom's-roast goose, red cabbage, potatoes-and I am stuffed. Now we are just taking it easy, the Trouble #1 is painting, Trouble #2 is watching a movie.
It's a good thing.
