And So It Was Christmas....

We had finally made it to the "Main Event".

My worries over DC getting so overly excited that he would not enjoy the day were for nothing.

He was fabulous! 

We last left you on Christmas Eve "Eve" over on the other blog 

As you may remember, DC began calling the restaurant we would be going to on Christmas Eve "The Place" because he had given up trying to pronounce the name.

Christmas Eve was finally here. I had already talked him into sleeping in his bed (he's been on the couch since last Christmas) because Santa would not come if he was sleeping in the living room. He was a little apprehensive about that but agreeable.

We went to pick up 'Grandmother' and we were off to have dinner at "The Place".

DC was in his glory. All of his favorites AND 'Fam-a-LEE'.

We skipped dessert at 'The Place' and headed home for cake, cookies and the opening of the Christmas Eve Gifts.

Christmas Eve gifts are normally a few gifts from me, gifts from Fam-a-LEE and a few friends. 

But there seemed to be an awful lot of gifts....

The Christmas Eve band-aid haul.
I’m sure there’s more to come tomorrow.
His arms are already covered.

DC went to bed (not to sleep, though) pretty early on Christmas Eve.
Unfortunately he was wide awake around 3:30 (so was I for some reason). I was a little bit concerned that he was getting sick because he was up so early.
Yes, he was excited about Christmas but this was REALLY early, even for him. I finally gave up getting him to go back to sleep at about 5:45.
He seemed fine (fingers crossed because he does not really ever tell me when he doesn’t feel well) but time will tell. In the meantime, Santa came and all is well with the world.
(Santa brought him 18 markers - one more than he’s been asking for; a bonus of sorts.... also because they just happen to come in a pack of 18)
            -   I think I may have predicted that back in early December. 

And yes, there would be more band-aids...

We had a quiet day at home as has been our tradition over the last few years and then out for Chinese food for dinner which has also become a tradition.

DC: "Just like A Christmas Story Live!" (Everything is Related, you know)

It has only been the last 3 years or so that we were actually able to stay home on Christmas Day and if I get a vote (I do), I don't see that changing anytime soon.


Merry Christmas!

(It IS looking like he's catching a cold....)
