Donny and I have always been lucky on Christmas to have kids that actually sleep in, instead of waking up at 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning. Madilyn came and woke us up and 8:00 am with the news that Santa HAD come, after all, (for a while it was doubtful, what with all the bad behavior and fighting and stuff). Christmas morning started out like this,
And ended like this. . .
In between, there were lots of gifts from Santa, some ohhhs and ahhhs, some "What, Clothes? Santa doesn't give clothes", some "I love clothes, even from Santa", and lots of actual joy and happiness! It was a Christmas miracle.
