Christmas morning was warm and rainy – very UN-New England like.
And I was the first one up – very UN-me like. There was time to get the coffee made and the camera all set up before the kids got up.
This year, everyone received books – lots of books. Some were unwrapped – those meant to be shared with the entire family. The rest were wrapped for someone special. There were new games, miniature pots and pans, felt sandwich fixings, new Schleich dinosaurs, and, as always, handmade gifts. Those are always the favourites. When gift opening was finished, we enjoyed our traditional Christmas breakfast of homemade cinnamon buns, hard boiled eggs, and cocoa.
The rest of the day was spent reading, playing, and cooking dinner: a home-cured and smoked ham and all the trimmings. We were too stuffed for dessert and had to take a nap first. 🙂 And then some of us had to take another nap after dessert.
And we are still Christmas-ing… at least for a few more days.
