So, my Christmas recap is a little late. I’ve had the hardest time getting back to real life after the most wonderful Christmas I’ve ever had. Seriously. It was SO much fun. Watching your kid on Christmas morning, opening presents and getting so goddamn excited over each and every one is just the best thing ever, and makes up for every lost hour of sleep over the past year and a half.
We spent Christmas Eve with my brother-in-law Charles, his girlfriend Cheri, and her wonderful, amazing family. Cheri has twin sisters who are 10, so Dylan was in heaven, what with the presents and treats and constant captive audience. We got home very late, put the girl right to bed, and set out playing Santa. Christmas morning we spent at home, just the three of us, and I will remember every moment of that time together for as long as I live. THAT’S how awesome it was. After she tore through what seemed like enough wrapping paper to feed a small country, we headed to my sisters house for MORE presents and some good times with her cousins. Then the rest of the day, we laid around. We watched TV, snacked, napped, played with many, many toys. Had takeout fish and chips for dinner. Laughed. Smiled. Loved. It was brilliant. I can’t wait till next year.
I hope you all had as wonderful a day as we did. Happy Holidays!
