On Christmas Eve, the kids each opened up a gift, and it was matching red pajamas from Grandma & Granddad. They looked ridiculously cute in them. We tucked them in their beds, and then started assembling the play kitchen that we bought for them. Grandma and Granddad did most of the assembling, because we went back to church to help clean up after the Christmas Eve services. Thanks for the help, Grandma & Granddad!
On Christmas morning, the kids enjoyed playing with their new kitchen, new table and chairs, big toy car track thingy and other toys.

My dad has a knack for finding extremely entertaining gadgets/gizmos/games/toys at Christmas. This Christmas, he did not disappoint. We were sitting in the family room, and I heard this swooshing sound. I looked to my right, and an enormous clown fish (about 4 feet long and 2 feet tall) "swam" (flew?) around the staircase. Dad bought two helium-filled mechanical fish - one shark and one clown fish. The babies were a bit timid at first, but by the second day, Vivienne was requesting that we bring the fish into the great room so that they could swim (fly?) around.
