Christmas morning came bright and early…but thankfully not TOO early. I got up, put the egg casserole in the oven, made some coffee, and waited for the boys to wake up. We’d decided we wouldn’t open presents until after breakfast, but Santa did bring something to them in their playroom that they got to see right when they woke up…
After breakfast (mostly cereal, though Miles ate a little of the eggs…shocking!) we opened presents. The boys got tool sets and nerf footballs and lots of parts for their
dollhouse gender-neutral miniature playhouse. They also got tiny slinkies and some clothes and other toys.
I got a new wedding band, yay! My old one (which I adore and is gorgeous, but sadly unresizable) doesn’t exactly fit right now, but after a little finger liposuction, it should be fine. Then I’ll have two pretty wedding bands!
We headed to my mom and Larry’s house after all the presents, and there, the boys got MORE presents! Cameras and train tracks for their new table. Flashlights and watches and all sorts of goodies! We ate an awesomely delicious meal and then went for a walk to feed the ducks.
And then the kids were in bed, thank goodness…I was so sleepy!
Today, I took the boys to see my lovely friend Kristie and her parents. I have been friends with Kristie since we were 12, so it was really weird/surreal to introduce my children to her parents. Love them! I’ll have to get pictures from Kristie of the boys’ shenanigans. After that, I dropped the boys off at Granny & Grandpa’s, where they got yet more presents. Tons of stuff! They were in heaven.
