the 2nd day of xmas

Because we work for an awesome company, we had Christmas Eve off work. After not having much time off this year, I was definitely looking forward to the long weekend.

We spent the morning wrapping up some Christmas-related stuff, then Brian and Jake played the role of Santa and delivered presents to the neighbors and a few other friends.

By the time they returned, it was time to go to church (4:30 service). We made like Catholics and left after communion so we could get to my parent's for dinner on time. Thanks to the weather being ok, my Grandmother and her sister were able to join us for dinner (which was excellent, by the way).

Jake chattered the whole way home. He wasn't excited about Christmas or anything (right). We didn't really do anything after we got home. In fact, our gifts are still sitting on the dining room table. Normally we'd put everything under the tree, but Buster was a little too interested in the things we brought back from "The 1st Day of Xmas" so we've been putting stuff away instead.

This was the first year that Jake didn't believe in Santa, so we didn't have to stay up until he fell asleep (we put the presents out this morning instead--more on that in my next post), though we were still up later than usual.

Merry Christmas everyone!
