It's the little things

What a wonderful Christmas morning the Roof family had today. Katharine declared it Christmas morning at 5:30 and we were off and running from there. The kids were so thrilled with all there presents; Matthew spontaneously shouting "thank you" after each one.  After the mad rush of getting ready for Christmas, a quiet day of togetherness is more than enough.

Merry Christmas from the Roofs

First sleepover

Tonight I dropped KK off for her first "official" sleepover with her ol' ECDC buddy, Mae. Basically, they have known each other their whole lives as Mae's mother and I were graduate school office-mates back in the '90s.

Watching Rudolph

Beginning today the entire Roof family is on Christmas vacation until after the New Year. Hallelujah!

We are kicking it off with a quiet night on the couch, in our pjs, watching Rudolph. Hot cocoa, egg nog, cookies, and warm feelings abound.
