Cecilia decided to wake up giggling at 6:15. Andrew was up until the wee hours of the morning singing Midnight Mass, so I took her downstairs, where we turned on the monitor and found that John Paul was awake, too!
So the kids have been happily playing with their Christmas Eve present (a Little People nativity) and their stocking stuffers (so far John Paul's favorite is a set of alphabet wall decals, and Cecilia is loving her nativity-themed rubber duckies).
Cecilia was happy to have it to herself for a few minutes!
But John Paul had to come along and ruin the moment :P
Luckily, a camera is a whole lot more exciting than a toy!
And as you can see, the sun was only just starting to rise...
John Paul's first action upon coming downstairs (after he finished being excited about his new toy): He came over to the grown-up nativity set and exclaimed, "BABY JESUS IS BORN!!!"
