At 7AM exactly, upstairs sounded like a stampede as Greta and Holly came rushing downstairs! Maeve somehow stayed asleep through all of that, but woke up a little later and came downstairs upset because no one was upstairs, but her tune changed almost immediately when she remembered it was Christmas! Our Christmas morning looks like this: we open up stockings first, all taking turns. Then we eat breakfast once it's ready. And then I like to take our time opening up gifts. There's no rush! I really enjoyed the pace of this year's Christmas morning and I was so grateful that I didn't feel overwhelmed by stuff at the end of it. We spent the remainder of the day playing together, video chatting with family and we watched a movie. It was so ideal!

And here's Maeve playing with her gift from Conor and I the day after Christmas.
