We had a nice Christmas day, although we didn't do too much. The girls, of course, were up first thing. I was smart enough to get up a little before their regular wake up time and have some coffee. Elizabeth came up first, but I had to coax her downstairs to wake up Helen. Helen did not want to be woken, but was easily persuaded as Elizabeth jumped around the room saying, "Helen, come see what Santa brought you!"

Within the hour, all the presents had been opened. They are both really happy with all the things and have been playing with them all day. Mostly, they like the dolls with horse-drawn carriages that I got them, but they have been doing puzzles, dressing up and reading books, too.

Reading Time

Elizabeth and Helen enjoy Richard Scarry's Nursery Tales with their great grandmother on Thanksgiving.
