The Day After Christmas

Amidst all the post-revelry cleaning, laundry, book-release-celebrating, and online shopping with Christmas money to catch the after-Christmas sales, I am not at all above posting a bunch of photos of my girls on Christmas, mainly for the grandmas.

As you can see, we do not do quality, nicely-posed, well-lit photography in this house. We do things fast and cheap, before the crying starts.

Sabine says, "Very funny. You annoy me."

Christmas Eve, ages 5 and 7

Presents are awesome.

Giant chocolate-glazed, chocolate- and almond-filled coffee
cake for breakfast on Christmas Day is awesome too.

Like I said, cake for breakfast = awesome.

Matching Barbie outfits. Enough said.
(Giant dollhouse in background. Santa got a good deal and,
with the help of Visa, fulfilled a dream of mine for my little girls.)

So there you have it. Consumerism, excess, credit card debt, giant desserts, mess, and the dressing of animals in hats--the very essence of Christmas.

And we loved every minute.

Thank you for the picture gallery which allowed us to share in your Christmas too! Looks like a grand time was had by all, even Sabine, although she'd never admit it. The "Barbie outfits" were maybe cuter on the hangers...but the girls look satisfied anyway!
