for Christmas is hard...
we celebrated Sam's 37th on the 23rd with the traditional Page birthday cake and presents to open--a happy diversion to the waiting,
but then it was still 2 more days to wait:
Rachel caught up on e-mail,
David on phone messages,
Jess did some cooking,
Toby some laundry sorting,
Maddie some photographing,
Max and Simon some movie watching,
and Gwen some just plain waiting!
The elves got dressed in their matching pj's
with the paparazzi snapping away.
But still, there was more time to wait.
