The kids all had a great Christmas. They woke up nice and early, as I knew they would. The boys ripped into their gifts with glee, and Zoe seemed a bit bewildered by it all. That being said, she got into it pretty quickly and had a good time, too.
Winter finally arrived here. I'd been wondering when that would happen. Warm temperatures lingered for far longer than I could have reasonably expected, and now it's cold and snowy like it would normally be this time of year. I'm not personally excited about it, but I'll celebrate on behalf of my kids who jumped for joy when they saw it was snowing outside.
Happy New Year everyone! Here's to an excellent 2018!
