Yesterday, the day after Christmas, everybody woke up after a long night of post-holiday recovery sleep.
We scooped some breakfast together, then Sofie and I started packing to make a visit over to my parents house for round 3 of presents and holiday celebrations.
I hopped over on the ferry again, and made it to my parents house just shy of dinner time.
Before our meal we opened and exchanged the last bit of presents we had, and Sofie scored even more toys and goodies.
It was a nice (not so quiet evening) with Sofie and the family, catching up and enjoying each others company.
I think it’s safe to say it was a success. We all slept in a little that morning, but we eventually rolled out of bed and had a little cocoa and opened presents, mostly for Sofie. It’s pretty nice waking up as a little family together. After all the present unwrapping was done, everybody got out of their pj’s to head over to Jason’s moms for some late breakfast and more presents for Sofie.
I’ll admit, Sofie was pretty tentative about opening her presents when we first started in the morning, but by the end of the day she was pretty much a pro. It was pretty funny watching her realize that there are THINGS in the boxes, like TOYS and CLOTHES, and no, it’s not just a box covered in colorful paper.
After spending some time at Jason’s mom’s we headed out to visit with his dad for a little bit where Sofie had even MORE presents! Boy this girl got pretty spoiled this year (not to mention the presents she hadn’t even opened from my parents yet!).
I didn’t do too bad this year either, but for the most part I feel like the older I get the more practical the gifts I want… but mostly just money, which is mostly what I got, so I’m happy. Jason got me some nice clothes and accessories, new boots too since my last pair totally just fell apart, and he’ll be smelling good with the new Burberry cologne I got him. But, Sofie was the star of Christmas anyways, and she deserves all the love and attention in the world.
By later that evening we were all pretty tired, so we decided to head home and just veg out the rest of the day with our leftover chinese. We watched a little more of the British Office then it was nighty night for us.
Well, that’s it for now, I sincerely hope everybody had a great holiday!
Goofy Sofie in her pj’s after the long day of making the Christmas rounds! I couldn’t get a straight face out of her!
