Christmas was great this year. Not only did we celebrate the holiday but we also celebrated my sister’s birthday. The double celebration was all my niece’s idea; she wanted to do something special for my sister. And she did do something special. She did a wonderful job in picking out the decorations and setting them up. And of course my sister outdid herself with all of the yummy food.
The only sad part was that Maggie’s dad had to go to work in the afternoon so he couldn’t experience Maggie opening her gifts…again! I say again because on Christmas Eve we decided to open some gifts but he had work again. But at least we have recordings of Maggie’s reactions opening the gifts. It was a long but wonderful day spent with family.
