There were filled stockings and presents by the fireplace. The cookies were eaten, the carrots and celery were clearly nibbled on, and the chocolate milk was gone. The letters were answered, and everyone was merry.
After opening the stockings and the Santa presents, we took a break for a big breakfast of eggs and bacon and two kinds of sweet breads.
And then we tackled the huge stack of presents under the tree.
Animal hats for all.
And make your own snowman kits.
The boys never even made it out of the pajamas all day, and Otto fell asleep in front of the fire, exhausted from the big day.
