When we told the girls that Saturday was our Christmas Eve, they were so super excited...it didn't make one ounce of difference to them that Santa was coming a little late. They understood that we had something more important to do on the "real" Christmas. As if on cue, the snow started falling Saturday night. Emmie and Rosie broke out into "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and insisted that Rudolph would really have to use that red nose to light Santa's way back to our house. The girls got a plate of goodies ready for Santa and the reindeer and we read "The Night Before Christmas" because, for us, it was the night before Christmas. As the five of us sat around our tree, for the zillionth time Patrick and I knew that we had made the right decision to get Francesca before Christmas. Even though our holiday season was far from "normal", it was perfect in it's own way.
|"Christmas Eve." Frannie was so excited and she didn't even know what she was being excited about!|
Maybe she just thought that huge cupcake from Mike's in the North End was for her.
|The closest thing I could get to a photo of Frannie. I'm not sure if she knew what|
was going on, but she stayed very busy with all of her new toys.
|Did they get Elsa and Anna dresses? Of course they did. But they spent most|
of the day wearing their new firefighter outfits and putting out fires. Love my gals!
