Maya and Guillermo and their train cake creation.
Today was so fun.
We started the day at the park, where we met several of Guillermo's friends from school and their parents for coffee (and Bailey's), bagels, cookies and muffins. We wore those kids out. They played for about two hours, mostly running and chasing after each other.
When we came home, we should have had them rest. Instead, they played outside with Guillermo's remote control car and painted their refrigerator box clubhouse. We also played hockey with noodles and Maya rode her bike.
Later, we packed in the car for church. Maya was exhausted and if we had brought milk with us, she surely would have fallen asleep. Instead, she whined, wiggled and squirmed. Thankfully, we attended the children's mass, so there were plenty of kids there, and plenty of them were wiggling and squirming just like Maya.
When we came home, they opened one present: A small Star Wars Lego set for Guillermo and a puzzle for Maya. They loved them. Then ceviche, and then we finally decorated the train cake. Maya had so much fun and would sneak candy every chance she could. Guillermo ditched us when he discovered Will and Will's father watching Pirates of the Caribbean. (Hey, it's Christmas Eve!). They went to bed without a peep.
