Christmas 2017

Heather had a Holiday Concert for school on the 18th.  She had a blast.  The program was all 4 kindergarten classes at her school so the multi-purpose room was packed.  Luckily she's a head taller than most of the other kids in her class so I was still able to get a couple pictures of her through the crowd.

Then it was quickly in to Christmas Eve with our own little "program."  Heather read us "Santa from Cincinnati":

After the program the girls opened their presents for each other:

Corinne fell asleep clutching the trowel from the garden tool set.  Heather woke up at no-one-knows-but-possibly-2-something and colored in about 3 feet of her 10-foot space coloring roll.

After bed Santa arrived bringing a fully edible dig site for Heather:

And in the very early morning we snapped an obligatory don't-move-yet shot:

You'll notice it is still dark outside.  Heather had been up possibly since as yearly as 2-something, but no later than 4.  Corinne was up starting at 4:30.  We held them off until 6:30, but couldn't keep them contained any longer.

Corinne got a chair in her favorite color:

Heather was a super helper handing out gifts from under the tree.

Corinne is enamored of this plane.

 

Jess is pleased with her yarn bowls (from different parties she, luckily, received a large one and a small one--so she can use both).

After a brief break for some much-needed breakfast, the sun had risen, and the unwrapping was complete.  Now, nap time.
