Despite the RSV and house arrest, we managed to have a wonderful Christmas! On the 23rd (before Gavin was really sick) we had Rob's sister Allison and her family over. Here you can see Gavin with his only cousins on Rob's side: Ellie, Vicki, and Lexi.
On Christmas Eve we had a visit from one of Santa's helpers.
We continued our Christmas Eve tradition of making ridiculously delicious sandwiches with whatever we can think to put on them. Here we have avocado, tomato, cheddar cheese, and cucumber.
And the perfect finishing touch: salt and vinegar chips on the side! Aren't they beautiful? (Can you tell that one of us is a bit more picky than the other? There's more on my sandwich than you can see; I forgot to dress it up for the picture. But still, Rob's definitely has more stuff on it than mine.)
A tradition we each had during our childhood and picked back up is getting new pajamas for Christmas Eve. Here is Gavin on Christmas day in his new jammies.
We video chatted with each of our families, put Gavin to bed by 7:00, and watched a movie. Definitely a different Christmas from any I've had before, but it was kind of nice just to relax and be with each other. We enjoyed our last year of being lazy on Christmas day for a long, long while.
