Christmas Day

on December 26, 2008

We had to wake Emily up so she could open some presents and have breakfast before we went to church. She was always so scared of Santa that we didn’t press the issue a whole lot with her during the holiday. We told her that Santa would bring her presents but that was about it. She adamantly refused to sit on his lap and even covered her eyes while we walked past him in Dierbergs on Wednesday. So imagine our surprise to her answer to Stephen’s question: “Do you know who came last night?”

“Santa came. Left presents!”

She was very excited to see what he left her! It was so much fun seeing her really getting into it this year. Last year she would have been happy just to play with a box but this year the wrapping paper was FLYING! I think I would be lying if I said that Emily didn’t get a little spoiled this year but she was a very, very good girl! She got quite a bit of goodies and she didn’t know what to play with first!

After breakfast and church, we headed over to Grandma and Papa’s for lunch and more presents. She is going to think that she should open presents every day! Might have to wrap up some of the presents again and let her go to town opening.

It was a very good day. We had a good visit with family and everyone was happy. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful family who is so loving and so generous. I couldn’t ask for anything more!
