Christmas is officially over. We enjoyed our Christmas season quite a bit, but I’m still feeling relived it’s over now. I’m ready to move on and feel excited for the new year.
The kids have been playing with our new things all day today. We really tried to focus on useful gifts, experiences, family gifts, and creative things. We got a Nintendo switch and that was a hit. Last night we all played a game of Mario party together. They wanted to play Kirby Allies as soon as they woke up.
There has also been a mix of Pokémon play, pretend play with their new plush toys, and scratch art. I’ve brought snack plates to them since no one wanted to stop playing to eat.
The kids were gifted these excavating kits. Some have dinosaur bones, others have gems and other little things inside.
Elijah had an idea to try to put some of the “dirt” in hot water to see if that will help the process move along easier.
Winter was gifted a book that was a favorite in a library haul a whole back. It’s called “The book with no pictures”. He had me read it over and over, with silly exaggerated voices of course. Then Hailey wanted to read it to him.
Lots of Christmas candy has been consumed today too. I found these cute little chocolate sleigh and reindeer kits. Yum!
Grandma came by for a visit too. The kids played on the sit and spin for a bit, and Dexter took a turn.
A little bit of minecraft time happened as well. Right now, Elijah is watching a shark documentary, and Hailey is playing a Pokémon battle game on the switch.
I hope your holidays were wonderful!
