The children played and Reagan got the
After six fun hours of all things Christmas, we went back home. I was voiceless and exhausted. We were sound asleep by 10. Whew! In John's excitement, he was up by 6am Christmas morning and was oh so generous to let me sleep until a whopping 7:30! We exchanged gifts, ate breakfast, watched A Christmas Story and took a nap before taking showers to head to Rocky Mount for "Christmas: Part II" with his family.
We had a yummy lunch of roast, ham, Spanicopita, potatoes, green beans, and meat balls! It wasn't long after lunch began that the rest of the crew showed up. We had a wonderful time exchanging gifts and watching the children play with their new toys.
We gave Hannah a pair of "My First Skates" that I'm pretty sure she did not take off for the next two days. It's always so fun to see a child really enjoy a gift you've picked out just for them! Jackson was such a sweet boy and was always coming by asking to be held. Even though he's a big boy, he's still a snuggle bug.
We left Rocky Mount that evening exhausted, and I was voiceless once again. We were home by 7 and I'm pretty sure we were asleep by 9:30. We spent most of Monday relaxing, napping and running a few errands. I am working all day Tuesday and till 1:45 on Wednesday, then I'm off again until January 3. It's kind of nice to be back at work where it's quiet and I'm not tempted to do house work. It's giving me a chance to rest my voice because I haven't needed any medicine today, but I still have this darn laryngitis!
Hope you and your family had a blessed Christmas!
