Following that party, we had our own little family's party. Poor Emmy only got 2 gifts! But she was just happy to climb over everyone else's gifts. Charlie had fallen asleep on the way home from our Christmas Day gathering and we couldn't hardly wake him up. All of the kids were pretty exhausted and we got a little meltdown over a gift from Ruby of all people (she is usually honored with anything we give her.) Honestly, my first thought was that we are raising ungrateful children and we are spoiling them. It was a little bit of a letdown because we did a lot more on gifts for our kids this year. But it was just a reminder of how childish I am, too, when I don't get what I was expecting. And I'm an adult!! Ruby quickly got over it and so did I! And we had another spectacular night together!
