It has been a crazy few days with lots of visiting, presents and excitement. It was wonderful and it can be a magical time especially watching my girls get into the spirit of the holiday. It was funny to see as we all came down the stairs for the first time at Christmas that my dog Sonny ran to his presents and couldn't wait. Before the kids even opened one he had ripped open all of his. I guess this shows that everyone loves Christmas. My girls got in on it shortly after.
I love the holidays and being able to spend time with my extended family but it has been so nice to have a little quiet too. Things can get so chaotic at this time of year...it was nice to have a simple weekend on our own after running around on Christmas Eve and then having our own guests. Gillian did finally agree to let me get her haircut. I know you're wondering...let? isn't she four. I like it short and she likes it long but I think it's starting to grow on her. Maybe that's the wrong choice of words since it is a haircut but I love it!
