Shortcake barely slept last night, as she had to be up in the middle of the night to head to the airport. (We've been over this. Santa needed the sleigh for his big ride, and besides, Shortcake isn't allowed to drive the sleigh. She has to use conventional means of air travel.) Anyway, she made it, and arrived safe and sound home in Chicago. Wearing two backpacks. It's a family thing.
And once she got home, she opened her presents!
2 books and a game and a water bottle and snazzy jacket from Santaland and a DVD and a ukulele song book (thanks Santa!) and a 2017 calendar and a beautiful carved elephant.
Shortcake is spending her Christmas watching movies. So far, she's seen Miracle on 34th Street, the best Christmas movie ever, and Christmas Belle - which is terrible, atrocious, don't watch it - and is currently watching A Christmas Kiss II - we only hope it can live up to the hype of the first. And soon, she will see Rogue One and hopes to end the evening with Die Hard. Which she has never seen. So many things to look forward to!
