We made it to Christmas Eve!! It was touch and go there for a while! Just kidding - it's been a fast paced fall and I'm happy that we have two weeks off from school to recover a bit before we jump back into the grind! Tonight we had our traditional dinner of Chinese food - and after a year and a half here, we finally found a good place!! The kids opened a present from us and a present from their siblings. The Christmas Eve present opening is kind of a fluid tradition and changes based on what's going on each year and how old the kids are. They seem to really enjoy opening a few presents and they really enjoy playing with the few things that they get - new jammies and a toy or two - pure magic!!!
A new scooter AND a BB8 sweatshirt!
