Even though our Christmas was sandwiched in between a week-long bout of the stomach flu for all of us, one after the other, and then four good, old-fashioned head colds, we still managed to have a pretty awesome day.
Christmas Eve was a low-key affair at my sister’s in-laws’ house. It involved yummy food and cute pajamas for the girls.
Christmas morning was… well, if you’ve ever spent Christmas morning with two little girls, you can imagine.
Then we headed to my parents’ house for a delicious lunch of homemade chicken noodle soup and ham sandwiches. You guys: it’s the best.
There was also pie.
(Audrey had peanut butter and jelly. She’s fancy.)
And there were… more presents, obviously. Our girls are so spoiled.
Also there was a cute Santa baby hanging around.
And then! It was off to Christmas #3 with Dan’s family!
Then we all came home and crashed and pretty much haven’t left the house since Tuesday night. Audrey had a fever at bedtime Christmas night, and her cough got worse by morning, but a trip to the pediatrician on Wednesday confirmed it was just a cold, nothing to really worry about. So lots of naps and couch time for everyone! It hasn’t been the fun-filled Christmas break we were all hoping for (an afternoon movie outing! a trip to the Children’s Museium!) but I’m definitely thankful that we at least had a break from the germs long enough to at least enjoy our holiday plans with our families.
Here’s to 2013!
