the wind down

Christmas is so big for me that it's necessary to have a wind down period after the big day.  We let all the gifts hang out under the tree.  We take time to open up new sticker books and games and play them while we listen to Christmas music.  We drink peppermint hot chocolate and build with new Leggos.

This year the girls received an amazing wooden doll house and Merida (from the Disney movie Brave) dolls.  We spent the entire week after Christmas reminding them what her name was.  "What's her name again?"  "Merida"...over and over and over!  When we received the movie in the mail as a Christmas gift from Kiki and they finally watched it, we stopped having to remind them.  Thank goodness.
