Our morning was fun and festive and all the things it's supposed to be. We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast of eggs, bacon, biscuits, and sausage gravy. Everyone enjoyed opening presents. My most fun gift was a stand mixer. I have already used it twice and love it. I managed to surprise MH with a scope and Teen with a 3D Blue Ray player. Tot's other main gift was a plasma car. Since the weather was yucky, the presence of a plasma car required us to rearrange our breakfast room to allow for maximum available tile surface.We were sad when MH's parents had to leave early due to the weather, but we fully enjoyed our day at home. The sleet turned to snow in the mid afternoon, and after naps for Tot and me, I got up to cook dinner.
We ate shrimp alfredo then ate snickerdoodles then watched Elf. Tot tired of Elf, so he and I went to watch a few minutes of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer for a few minutes before bed. I had just taken Tot to bed when the power kicked off at 9:45. The house was warm and the yard was white. We snuggled in and stayed surprisingly warm all through the night. We enjoyed a white Christmas, afterall.
