I was looking forward to Christopher's winter break, so that we could go to Longwood Gardens and bake cookies. Unfortunately, I caught a stomach bug the day before Christmas Eve and those plans never happened. I am grateful I was better by the next day, so that we could attend Mass with my family and exchange presents with my parents.
We got home earlier on Christmas Eve so that the kids could sprinkle reindeer food outside, read a Christmas story, and put out cookies and milk for Santa.
I had all these grand photo and videos ideas for Christmas morning. You can imagine my disappointment when we woke up that day and it was extremely overcast. My camera functions very well in low light. There was no light. We thought maybe we could wait a few hours and it would clear up, but according to the forecast on our phones that wasn't expected till 3pm.
