What a fun day we had yesterday. G didn't realize that it was Christmas. As a matter of fact when I asked her if she knew what day it was she shook her head no then I told her it was Christmas and asked her if she knew who was supposed to come to our house and she said, "Grammie and Grandad?"
So I got the video ready and let her go see her gifts. We watched Sleeping Beauty (an early present) Christmas Eve on the computer in bed and tracked Santa. When we got on line to see him at NORAD he was in Argentina and then Chile. We watched the video of him in Rome, the Great Wall of China, Russia and London. It was fun.
At the advent service grammie and grandad came with us. We didn't knock anything over and we both lit the candles. It was a very nice service and a candle light one at that with communion. We actually haven't ever been to the Christmas Eve service at any of our churches because we are usually elsewhere with family.
Our San Diego relatives were supposed to fly out Christmas Eve but got stuck here so they left yesterday morning early. We went to dinner at the Chinese buffet for Christmas Eve with my parents then to hear and see the light display. Santa was there handing out candy canes so he must have been very late to everyone's home.
G and I took a lot of her gifts out to my parents so she could play with them. The race track we were supposed to put together in her room ended up at the grandparents which was actually good because it is huge. I had no idea. It will fit in our house but not in her bedroom! Grandad and Grammie got down in the floor to play with her too. Her favorite gift though was the doodle pro. That was from grammie and grandad. My favorite gift was watching G and her grandad color her stickers or playing with her stamp set.
