Santa was here (Part 2)
Tim and I had stayed up after we returned from Christmas Eve dinner to finish setting up Marco’s presents. I wanted everything to be perfect for the kiddo to run out and see his gifts!
Christmas morning dawned, and still the Dicksons snored. Marco woke up at 8am, not exactly happy with life. He insisted that Daddy hold him on his chest. The three of us stayed in bed and passed out for an additional 45 minutes. Then, we decided to have breakfast before Marco discovered his treasures.
Marco loves his eggs
Look at his excited face – and his adorable holiday jammies!
After breakfast, we let Marco run out to the living room to discover what was there. He was SO excited to see his tunnel tent!
There was even a special note from Old St Nick
Tim had piled Marco’s gifts into the tent so we could all hang out with Marco in his new digs.
I gave Tim two sets of cuff links (one that is reminiscent of a circuit!), and a cool book by Brian Cox, and the accompanying BluRay documentary. I also gave him a few silly things for his stocking, like binoculars, candies filled with Sambuca, and such.
After a pleasant morning and early afternoon lazing around, we got ready for our Christmas dinner with the Dicksons.
Marco looked so handsome! Vest, tie, slim fit jeans and Converse.
I made my special baked Brie for an appetizer (by special request), and it went fast! I was only able to get a few bites before it disappeared. We had a delicious dinner, and I spent a lot of time talking with Dad and Tim about photography.
My body wasn’t thrilled with me that day, and I was losing the battle to stay awake and comfortable., so we left around 9 so I could get home to bed. Overall, a very good and quiet Christmas.
