Oh, Christmas! We had such a great time this year. This was the first year we didn't have to drive anywhere! Let me add a few more exclamations to that!!!!!!!! My family come up for Christmas Eve and stayed for Christmas morning and some of Ed's family came up that afternoon. We had a yummy Christmas Even dinner and then watched some Christmas shows while Ed diligently put together G's present from Santa- a little kitchen. (Yes, I bought my son a kitchen. He loves it and has played with it every day since Christmas, thankyouverymuch!) I was so excited for Christmas morning I could hardly sleep. Both Ed and I were up before Greyson. We puttered around the house just waiting for him to wake up.
I tried really hard to not go overboard with presents this year and was proud of myself for sticking to my limits. The kids are beyond spoiled with presents from 3 sets of grandparents, aunts and uncles and friends so I knew they would have plenty of Christmas fun. Ed and I don't usually buy Christmas presents for each other, instead opting to buy one bigger item that we choose together. This year we decided to go on a little vacation for our big present but thought it would be fun to do stocking stuffers for each other. I was quite pleased with my purchases for Ed: a reusable sandwich "bento" box for lunch, a new flashlight (we can never seem to find one around here), a few toiletries, his favorite candy and a few other small things. Imagine my surprise when I pulled a pair of diamond earrings out of my stocking! I was a little mad...but mostly thrilled! My hubby knows how to spoil me!
We really had so much fun and loved being home with our babies to enjoy Christmas. Now, I just need to clean out the playroom and make room for all of the new toys!
