Hmmm.... seems like the kids were better than I thought, at least according to Santa. I wouldn't have been surprised if there was just 1 present beneath the tree, and stockings full of coal. But to my surprise, there were many presents under the tree, and stockings filled with goodies!
The boys were ultra-excited. They woke me up at 3...and then 4...and then 5... and finally at 6 and we get up around 6:30 and let them open the gifts. Daddy wasn't feeling well and was very tired so it was tough getting him out of bed.
Big news of the day- Samantha got a cell phone! She's only been wanting one for- EVER!! She was very happily surprised!
Will got some neat gifts, a chef hat with his name on it, some spices, and a new guitar hero.
Colby got his very own CD player and his favorite- the Stars Wars DVDs he's been wanting!
Owen got a cute riding toy. And he's crazy, he's already figured out how to stand on it and let go of his hands. I swear this child has no fear.
Mommy and Daddy were good too!! Daddy got the last season of 24 and a new DVD player. Mommy got a stadium seat, which I've been wanting for a long long time!
We have been watching 24 every night too :)
Christmas Eve at Grammy's was fun too. It was hard to get a couch picture this year, but I like the one I got.
Our tree is already taken down and we're trying to 'get back to normal'. But what IS normal? I'm also trying to do some deep- cleaning because I lost my camera battery charger. I lost it sometime before Christmas, so I've been taking minimal photos. I need to find it because I really don't want to have to buy a new one.
Samantha is in Kentucky with Colin and crew. He is racing. I'm sure she'll come back with big muscles in her fingers from texting! Ha ha ha.
Almost time for 2010!!!
