Christmas in the afternoon

We didn't get to opening presents until the afternoon
because Big A had worked the night before and needed a nap.

I held the kids at bay with the holiday casserole and mulled cider
and re-watching the second season of Stranger Things.

It turned out beautifully in the end 
(despite sleep deprived crankiness, roof worries, and health anxieties)

At gave me a Criterion copy of Chaplin's The Kid 
the first silent film we'd watched together--crazy to think it's almost a hundred years old

Nu gave me another book Molly's Story to go along with Wonder
Molly is a pupster and  has the sweetest beginning

Big A made my dreams come true
with the Alessi kettle I'd coveted for so long.
