Potato Heads and Nativities

Well, today was more productive (kid wise) than yesterday. We got our beautiful Nativity set up (it's the one from Willow Tree). I explained the whole Christmas story to Liam, and I think this is the year that he is actually understanding and grasping it, well.... maybe not... he's really fascinated with the wise men and their presents, but he didn't really comment on the fact that Jesus is sleeping in cow food in a cow house... hmmm.
Anyways, we also decorated our potato heads, just for fun. The kids had a blast picking out things for me to stick in them, they thought it was hilarious. They say the one with the mustache is Papa and the one with the Santa hat is Daddy. They didn't give the girl an identity, I guess I'm just glad it's not me!!!
We also remembered to eat our chocolate (three pieces each, yikes!!!) and read our books, four in total. One about Hewey, Dewey and Lewey, one was the Christmas Carols which we sang, one about a Daddy that was to busy to play with his son and Santa who was to busy to play with his reindeer, and then of course it had a happy ending, and one about a magical snowman... not Frosty though.
Anyways, the children are nestled all snug in their beds with visions of Burger King dancing in their heads, dad's in the car and the cat's in my lap, and I'm about to settle down for a 30 minute nap.
