The boys followed our instructions this morning and did not come out until we went to get them. I woke up at 6:00 am and had to go to the bathroom, but I held it, because I did not want risk getting them up. David and I got up, started coffee, got the camera ready, then David got the boys out. They enjoyed their present opening. Liam still does not quite get it and when we gave him stocking, he threw it down and said "no". Christian just ripped through his presents and after some coaxing Liam got his open. They have played happily with the new items today. We gave them art supplies, which are nice since they do not take up a lot of room. Christian has been hopping around the house on his new hippity hop all day.
The boys were playing quietly and I was sitting on the couch reading and I looked out the front window and was amazed. It was snowing! I grew up here in Portland and have been here every Christmas, except the two years I lived in Japan and I don't think we have ever had snow on Christmas (freezing rain a couple of times) It stuck a bit and should snow more tonight and stick. We got the coats out, they boys played in the snow and I took pictures. When we went out, we could hear children playing and yelling in delight from all over the street.
