Last year was such a party- we weren't sure how this year would measure up. It turned out wonderful in a more traditional way. The kids were all very excited. Josh's faith in Santa was renewed when he brought a Nintendo 3DS even though we'd told him not to count on it. Dekker was thrilled with his new Cars2 racing game for the XBox, and as you can see from the pictures- there were plenty of other gifts to create quite a mess as well. We had chocolate croissants (a tradition, thanks to Papa Ger) for breakfast, stayed in our PJs all day and had Leg of Lamb for dinner. It was one of those cozy at home Christmases that memories are made of!
