I'll start this post off with the bad news. Today was no different for me than any other big holiday. I call it "important day panic". It happens to me every time I very badly want something to go well. I obsess and fret until I have a panic attack which I then try to hide from the kids, causing myself more anxiety. But the kids are all tucked away into bed now, having been read "Twas the night before Christmas" and leaving the carrot for Rudolph and milk and cookies for Santa. So I will take some deep breaths and try to move on, knowing that the upshot of getting it over with on Christmas Eve, is that I may get to skip the Christmas Day panic attack!
We visited with my husband's family at their house for dinner and the kids got to open presents from them tonight. Then we stopped in at my parent's house for a quick visit before coming home to prepare for the big day! I hope that everyone who may read this has a wonderful Christmas filled with lots of family, love and good things to eat! Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
The girls got Precious Petzzz and that is what is sleeping on Mylie's lap, not a real dog.
This is my first and last year that I can match all 3 of them in the fleecy, cosy Carter's PJs that we buy every year for Christmas Eve. Laina is in the biggest size that Carter's has (at least around here), so her days of matching are numbered unless I sew them next year.
