OK Fess up you know you're glad it's over-I know I am; only problem all this STUFF and what to do with it!
We had a great time, the kids got WAY too much stuff and now I am suffering & trying to find a place to put it all. I did pretty good and the hubs got some good stuff himself. Our big one is still to come-we are getting new floors in the kitchen, living room and hall. Hardwood to be exact, we've got to get rid of this dirty carpet that my children have pretty much ruined.
I had to do collages because I took 523,781 pictures over all the celebrations.
Lets start with Christmas Eve-We went to his aunts house & were an hour late cause that's how we roll :) then home to open their special Christmas jammies and to my surprise hubs got me some also to open:), then track Santa thanks to NORAD we found out they were in Argentina, out to feed the reindeer, change into said jammies, put some milk and cookies out, Daddy reads "Twas the Night Before Christmas", then off to dream land. Then mommy locks the kids in their rooms and we stay up til Midnight wrapping all their stuff-then quickly realize they got WAY too much stuff.
On to Christmas Morning-6:30AM to be exact!!!
Yep seems as though all those "reports" from Jingles were good and Santa came. He ate all his cookies and drank all his milk, he also made a mess from the fireplace, which Shane had to vacuum up the next morning:)
(All the green and red presents are from Santa)
Here are some family pics-excuse my no makeup look I told you it was early!
And this one I HAD to share-Remember when I said that our new puppy Jet was famous by association? Well this will give you a bit more into that. See my hubs has some connections to a country music guy, and this singer who happens to sing one of my favorite songs has also written a book based on that song "My Little Girl". Anyone know this one? Well his connection put a bug into said singer/author's ear that Shane wanted one of these books for his little girl. Well he came thru and got Shane the book complete with an autograph from the author. Oh and a pic of him and his also very famous beautiful wife Faith signed by both of them!!! I had NO clue this was coming and was floored when she opened it, she loved the book & of course had no clue about the signature but oh well Mommy sure was happy about it.
Then after we somewhat got the destruction from mommy/daddy & Santa gifts cleaned up it was time for more with Gram, Pappy and Pa. We ate a huge yummy breakfast, then the real craziness began. They really racked up from the grandparents. The biggies were Abby's TV and big outside wooden playhouse and Wyatt's gun-yep that's how we do it here in the south 6yr olds get guns for Christmas:) and he also got a Nintendo DS.
Last night we went to Shane's dad and they got even MORE stuff from Mindy. Wyatt loves his basketball goal for his door and had to hang it up when we got home last night.
Today we were back to a bit more reality, but are planning on partying hard come New Years Eve-Not really we are old and boring and will just drop the kids with MIL and go out to eat.
Hope your Christmas was good and your house is as overrun with toys as mine is!!!
