Emery indulges me. Thoroughly.
And he let us have our family Christmas on Friday night. We're going to be away from home on Christmas anyway, and we already planned to have it a little early…..but I kept voting for earlier and earlier.
This is because I'm no good at surprises. If I've bought a gift and wrapped it, I want to give it to the recipient pretty much immediately. {I tried to do the "12 days of Christmas" with Emery one year, and of course, I made him open the whole bunch the first night. No self-control in that area}

Oh it was fun to have Hattie bring in the presents and yell "Merry Christmas!!". Adele loved all the wrapping paper and had an eagle eye for little scraps that would fit perfectly into her mouth.
Hattie's big gifts were a tea set and a lincoln log set, but she was also very excited about a purse and stick-on earrings. Adele wasn't too enthused about any of her gifts, but like I said, wrapping paper was a big hit.

The only draw back of having Christmas so early, is that now it feels like Christmas is already over and it's time to pack up the decorations and move on to the new year. Don't worry, I won't do that.

Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas!!
