We finished up our visit to Grandma and Grandpa's by opening up presents. The girls loved their custom-made "Scraps" doll from the Wizard of Oz. We then drove home, had dinner, and read Christmas stories before bedtime.
And then the kids left out cookies for Santa (and carrots for the reindeer).

The kids were quite excited to see Aunt Emily, even if it was only for the day to exchange Christmas presents for her. Though she's and her husband have been in China for the past year, she's often in the triplets' thoughts. Just the other day Arthur looked up from his lunch and said, "Aunt Emily is sleeping now." To which Nana said, "That's right. She's on the other side of the world, isn't that funny?" And then Arthur fully explained, "The sun can only shine on one side of the Earth at a time. It's like people talking. Only one person at a time can talk."

Erin just finished Coraline's stocking. Every year she's knit one for the family, and Coraline was thrilled to finally have hers finished. (She even forgo having Erin read her books at night, and encouraged her to knit instead). Now that the triplets' stockings are done, along with Nana and Pop Pop's, I think Erin will start hers next year. It'll be strange to have "Mom" knit into the stocking.

Today we took everyone out to a Christmas Tree farm in order to find out tree. The kids thought it was hilarious when Pop Pop tried to cut down the smallest, scraggliest tree of the bunch.
And "monk-sock" helped pick out our actual tree.
And the youngest got to put the angel on the top of the tree.
