Sahil & Samira's Christmas Highlights

-Dancing to ‘Hot Chocolate” from Polar Express, and watching it over and over again
-“YIGHTS” every time we passed a twinkly lit home
-“MORE YIGHTS” when we pass the lighted house
-Sahil told me “eating cracker and glue” at snack time. I was a little concerned till I realized it was graham crackers with frosting.
-Making gingerbread houses
-Making gingerbread boys and girls
-Snuggling on the sofa with Mommy, watching Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph and Polar Express.
-Opening presents with so much excitement
-Insisting on playing whatever they opened right away, and for a long while.
-Scared of “Shanta” at first but loved seeing him from a distance at the mall
-“Snowy Day!” i.e. the book. When they woke up to snow.
-Paring down my bulb ornaments by at least half.
-Listening to Christmas Carols at home and in the car and trying to sing along
-Singing at STRS’s holiday lunch
-Seeing the holiday train display at the library
-Driving through Fantasy of Lights at Alum Creek.
-Playing with all the friends and family that stopped by or that we visited during the holidays
-Lots of hugs, kisses, and fun during our time off at home!
