Christmas is a very social holiday and therefore, difficult to recreate without close family and friends. But, we did our best. Our kids have never seen snow, Santa, or Christmas lights. They understand very little of the cultural event we call Christmas. As an example, I give you Odin wearing our Christmas stockings as 'gloves'.
They did understand that Christmas Day is the day when we open some gifts. They both enjoyed their new toys- especially the tricycle!
It's tough to share new toys, isn't it?
We did some of the usual Christmas cooking- and eating.
Lily had her first mashed potatoes and loved them.
We had fun playing all day...
And we also got some work done, thanks to Odin.
Hope you all had a great holiday. We were thinking of and missing family and friends around the world.
