But, no matter how sneaky and busy Christmas can be, we always have a lovely time when it comes right down to it.
We begin our traditions on Christmas Adam, and this year, we ended up spending about five hours that day making and handing out treats to neighbors and friends because I procrastinated it until the very last second.
Sophia ran upstairs before we left and came down decked out as a holiday elf. She was loved everywhere we went, though she kept asking me why everyone kept saying she looked just like an elf. Since that was her original plan, I'm not sure why she was so surprised, but she was certainly adorable.
Puccini wasn't quite sure what all the fuss was about, though she did enjoy her own gifts of bully sticks and new squeaky toys. She also found all of the wrapping mess to be a comfortable place to take a Christmas nap.
And now I am treating Christmas break with as much laziness as is humanly possible. I was one worn-out woman before the semester ended!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are being just as lazy as I am during your vacation.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
