I hope everyone in reading this had a happy day today. We had so much fun. I must say, this has been the least stressful Christmas Day I can remember. One of the best gifts I got drove up last night out of the blue: my brother. We didn't think he'd make it this year because of his job, but he did and it was great seeing him again.
The kids had a lot of fun opening gifts and everyone did well choosing toys for them--they were all well received. Emmett had no use for the new clothes he got from his grandparents and aunt and uncle, but his mother is thrilled with them. We managed to make present opening at the house last until after lunch. It was nice to stretch things out and let the kids play and goof around at their own pace. We even had a visit from a movie star at one point in the morning. She was quite aloof and spent a lot of time on her celphone while she was here. There seemed to be a lot of people phoning her. Thankfully her teensy dog stayed in it's purse and didn't bug Lucy.
I got a fantastic new purple handbag that I will have to hide from my grandmother, and a shiny new breadmaker that I have big plans for tomorrow!! I also got some squishy new yarn that I can't stop petting.
