Merry Christmas!

 Merry Christmas!!  It has been a fantastic day!!  The kids didn't even get up until 7:00 - a Christmas miracle!!  Everyone was so happy with everything that Santa brought!  Aidan got a PS4, Emmy got the dress she has been wanting, Aoife got the legos and stuffies she asked for and Declan got TRAINS - of all sorts! 
Gramma and Daddy Jim were here to celebrate with us which made it even more special!  After the rush of opening presents, we had our traditional Baked French Toast Casserole with Pecan topping which is honestly more like a bread pudding!  Daddy Jim got some delicious stollen that everyone - even Declan - loved!! 
Unfortunately Emmy started feeling sick about halfway through the day.  She spent a few hours building with legos and then had to take a break to lay down.  I don't even think she ate much dinner.  We had our traditional Christmas dinner - Turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole and salad with a boiled cider vinaigrette.  We had cookies for dessert but I don't think anyone was too hungry for them!!  Everyone loved the Christmas crackers that Brendan picked up - the paper crowns were a hit with everyone but Declan.  Aidan spent his dinner trying to figure out the weird British puns!!  To cap it all off - Aoife lost her other front tooth after dinner!!  Very appropriate!!
