Welcome to Day Twenty-Four and Day Twenty-Five!
I am really one of those people that is DONE with Christmas on Christmas Day. Even putting these last two pages together was a challenge for me as I'm just ready to move on to the next thing. I think, actually I know, that's a big reason why I put a lot of effort into keeping up throughout the month - I know that I am so over-it by December 26.
Still left to do is the intro page, a closing page, and figure out if there's a different option other than the rings. I'll be back in a few days with those.

Merry, merry Christmas morning. It already feels like a huge blur.
I love this shot because it's got a bit of everything: tree, kids, jammies, presents, lights, etc.
The ISO on my photos, especially for Christmas morning, was way, way to high. Trying to work with them in photoshop/aperture and not getting very far. Embracing, embracing, embracing...and just getting over it.
For page two I decided to just go with a photo of the family and journaling.
JOURNALING : We had a really nice, really simple Christmas here. It was filled with the voices of two kids: one age eight and one almost-two. They were both excited. Simon was full of anticipation and could not wait to go to bed on Christmas Eve. Chris and I stayed up way too late watching The Cove (all presents were wrapped) and then when we headed to bed around 1am in walks Simon saying, "Merry Christmas!" and wanting to know if Santa had visited yet? He crawled into bed with us and went back to sleep before waking at 5am ready to celebrate. Mommy + Daddy were tired (note to self: get in bed earlier next year). We were able to hold him off a bit longer and then we made our way downstairs after hearing Anna's wake-up yell of "Mama!!!" If Simon could have dived into the pile of presents I think he would have - he was seriously so, so excited. It was chaos and magic and delight and fun. Simon danced around the room after finding that Santa brought him the Lego Hogwarts Castle. Anna's favorite was a new baby doll. Chris' parents and Grandparents came over for dinner. They actually brought dinner over which was a very special treat for me! I really, really missed my parents, siblings and their families.
