We had a low-key, relaxed Christmas this year. Well, the adults were relaxed. The Roc doesn’t possess the relax gene. He was very excited to go to his Grandparents house for “early Christmas,” where he got one of his favorite gifts this year. He took at bath that night, at Grandma’s house, so he could play with the shark and killer whale before we went home.
On Christmas Eve morning GC got to work in the kitchen.
He had company.
The Roc worked on a train cake while he waited for Grandma and Grandpa to come over.
Around the house.
GC spent the whole day in the kitchen.
My mom brought over a little workbook for the Roc.
Later she helped him write a note to Santa.
“Dear Santa, I am a good boy most of the time.”
We let the Roc open a couple gifts from far away relatives. My little baker was very happy to get a cake pop maker!
Santa came after everyone else was in bed!
The Roc was very excited on Christmas morning to see all the presents under the tree.
He was especially excited that Santa brought a few things off his list. A snowman kit,
and a snowplow!
GC and the dog watched.
Later, my parents came back over for lasagna and we all had a lot of fun playing with the Roc’s (GC’s) new remote control helicopter.
Low key, relaxed, amazing food, good conversations, and new toys. A wonderful Christmas!
Now if only the rest of winter “break” would go as smoothly….
