Advice: Always take a picture of moms with their kids.

We spent the evening eating snacks & watching The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Afterwards, John & Christian played hide & seek in Minecraft. lol. Before that, Christian opened one present, which was a book called Wonder by R. J. Palacio. John & Christian went to see the movie a few days ago so of course we had to get Christian the book as well.
