Christmas Eve we spent the morning and afternoon at home, then it was off to Chris' brother Kevin's house for Christmas with the Greiving (Chris' mom's) side of the family. We were there until about 10 or a little after, then we came home and got Santa's cookies ready for him, and left some carrots out for the reindeer.
After the boys went to sleep it was time for Santa's elfs to get to work on setting up the presents! And while this elf was busy with that, here's what the other elf was up to... The boys woke up about 8:30 Christmas morning and look what they saw! Santa Came!!! He left a little note to let them know he enjoyed the cookies and chocolate milk, and appreciated the boys leaving carrots for the reindeer. He also let them know that their stocking were downstairs (because they normally hand on the fireplace upstairs), so they wouldn't think he took them!
After reading the note Santa left, we headed down to see what he had left behind for them.
At about 9:30 that morning my parents, brother, and grandparents (from AZ) came over and we opened presents from them.
After everyone left, we sat downstairs and played for a while, well, Chris cleaned up (I swear he has OCD!). then we all fell asleep, and took about a 3 hour nap! It was great!! When we woke up we got ready to go over to my parent's house and eat dinner and exchange presents with my sister and her girlies.
Luckily none of us old geezers broke anything while playing. And to think I used to think this game was a breeze! I guess that's one of the joys of getting older. lol
On the way home from my parents house Christmas night, we stopped by the video store and bought a few movies. We camped out in the basement that night and watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! It was really fun, and the boys got to use their new sleeping bags. :)
Well, that's about how our Christmas week went. Sorry it took me so long to get it all posted. I will get better at keeping it updated... sometime...I hope y'all had a great Christmas too!
