We had a classic christmas this year, santa brought a doll for Poppy and a play mobil castle for Soren. The kids ran downstairs in their pyjamas, eager to see what toys awaited them. The night before, they had carefully laid out two cookies for santa, a glass of milk, and eight carrots for the reindeer. Actually, nine - they thought santa might want to eat one too.
We had a lovely day. As my husband pointed out to me a couple weeks ago, we are only going to have a two and a four year old for ONE christmas. This was a magical year for both of them, filled with lots of family, traditions, and presents. (and I was obligated to include a picture of a bottle of cognac - this was apparently one of the best parts for Tyler!)
