Christmas in January

Since Mimi and Pops got a little sick after Christmas, they didn't come to Charleston as originally planned over New Year's Day to celebrate Christmas with Claire. We held our belated Christmas celebration tonight with Claire opening the majority of the gifts--she didn't complain.
The biggest hit was a hexbug, with which Claire played the rest of the evening. Mimi had gotten a tip from another 10-year-old about the best toy to give. Claire immediately recognized the robotic creature, exclaiming, "Cool, a hexbug!"
Claire made a quick mess with all the paper and trimmings from her presents. Tomorrow we'll celebrate her birthday, though I'm sure Claire won't mind unwrapping gifts all weekend.
