Christmas festivities began early at the Robinson abode. Amy stated she heard Tyrel scampering around early in the morning. At one point, she opened her eyes to see Tyrel standing in our bedroom doorway just waiting. As it was too early, Amy told him to go back to bed.
After an eternal 15-20 minutes Tyrel was up pitter-pattering about again. His strategy had changed and he opted to wake Erin. If one thing could be said about Erin it is that she in NOT afraid.
Without a second thought, Erin was in our bedroom and getting us up to start the day’s activities. Amy and I could see we would have better luck trying to hold back the tide, so the fun started.
Without question, gifts were bestowed on Tyrel and Erin beyond any credit they had banked during for being good during the last year.
We then made a pilgrimage to the Mother Town for breakfast at my parent’s house with extended family. I look forward to these gatherings as it gives me a chance to catch up on the family scoop. I am sure Amy would vote that I use these audiences to air my latest stories from work. Either way, it is engaging conversation.
More visiting and food followed at the Amy’s parents long after the sun had set. We then made our way home with 4 very tired people in one car.
Our Christmas ended with and unplanned event; the power went out. We broke out the candles and portable DVD player as the kids wanted to watch their newly acquired movie, Horton Hears a Who. As this was the only activity going we were a captivate audience for a while. When the battery of the DVD player went dead it was a natural time to go to bed.
Our day ended with everyone in the Robinson house going to be around d 7:30 pm. As none of us had a chance to take a Christmas Day nap, how can you write a better ending to a Christmas Day?
