Kids who are 5 and 2 run through the full range of emotions on Christmas morning. The excitement, the rush, the waiting, trying to open packages, the highs followed by calm, followed by needing a nap....it's a lot for a kid to take in. Let's start with being woken up by your big brother, before you are quite ready.
* The purse is from Christmas Eve. It was the only thing that got her out of bed.
Loudoun was fine all morning. 5 year olds are mature.
She took some encouragement to be happy.
But, once we got into the swing of things, we were good to go.
We had a wonderful Christmas and the kids proved it by passing out in bed at 5pm. Then Rick and I watched Inglorious Basterds on BluRay and passed out early ourselves.
Looking forward to a kick-ass 2010.
