Christmas Day

Last night was a late night. We knew we could count on Rachel to sleep just a little bit longer than usual. But not Hannah, she was at 6:20. Hannah had to wait to go out to the Family Room until Rachel was awake. If Rachel continues to be the one to sleep in a bit longer than Rachel, I can totally see Hannah waking Rachel up just so we can get the process started. LOL.

Our morning started with Hannah discovering her new bike and Rachel wanting to get on her new bike she'd gotten from Great Grandma last night. From there, we did our stockings and opened the presents beneath our tree. There were quite a few, including gifts from out of state aunts, uncles, and cousins, and a few from Grandpa Steve. What excitement there was when the rest of the family arrived. The girls were excited to have their cousins over for the morning.

Rachel skipped Christmas Dinner with the family and took a nap. She was beyond tired and overstimulated and just plain grumpy. She woke up in a much better mood and was ready to eat. One of the funny things that Rachel kept doing over the past two days was, somehow she kept sneaking fudge, or she'd find a stash of chocolate, or suckers. All which probably didn't help her mood at all. LOL.
