Since we're still in the RV we also had to do a small Christmas. We couldn't go crazy with presents because there's just no room in here for anything else. We bought each of the girls four presents and Santa brought them each one, too. We made sure to get them at least one thing from their wish list. Everyone was happy and I don't think they realized they didn't get as many gifts as they have in the past. I think in the future we will continue to keep the gifts to just a few that the girls really, really want. Maybe that way they'll take better care of the few things they get since they tend to trash their stuff pretty quickly.
I was glad that we were able to keep most of our traditions going, even in the RV. We still made cookies for Santa and left carrots for the reindeer. The girls all got their traditional Christmas Eve pajamas. We tracked Santa online and looked outside for Rudolph's nose. One tradition we didn't get to do was make fudge. I love fudge and look forward to making it each year. We made peppermint bark instead and the girls were just as happy. My birthday is coming up so maybe I'll make fudge instead of having a cake!
And now to the pictures. Well, I did take a few but in my attempt to add them to the computer I accidentally deleted most of them. Bummer, big time. Luckily the video I took didn't get deleted so most of the pictures here will be snapshots from the video. Next time I'll be more patient!!
