Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! We had a wonderful day yesterday - thank you to everyone who sent us gifts!! The kids slept in until 8 am and we didn't finish opening presents until 11:30 or so. We had to take a few breaks - the kids were beginning to get overwhelmed. Aoife had to take a nap in the middle of it all and Emmy shut herself in the bathroom for about 20 minutes to calm down from the rush of all the new toys. It was really funny but I am glad that she knows how to calm herself down and realized that she needed it! Brendan's parents sent us a Wii and we got a few games. Brendan seems to be really happy to have Aidan play video games with him! Everyone got lots and lots of stuff - Santa was very generous!

Aidan opening the Wii - he was very excited!!
Emmy wearing dress ups, wings, jewelry, a helmet, eating chocolate and playing with her new cash register - heaven!
Even Aoife enjoyed the chaos!
