We woke up and Mother Nature did not disappoint. We had our first white Christmas!
The kids were super excited, of course.We decided this year that we would watch everyone open gifts, not the adults but the kids. And they did well, being patient and opening things so that we could all see what everyone got.
Well, Santa's gift, we let them all tear into. So, Ben got this Lego set that he never before mentioned, but wrote Santa a note at about 10 PM on the 23rd. Um, I didn't think he wanted this Lego set. And since Ben doesn't read my blog, I can write freely. We looked on Amazon and knew it wouldn't come in time. We weren't planning on going anywhere on Christmas Eve, so how was Santa going to bring this gift to Ben? Well, David woke up on Saturday morning and drove to Walmart and got one of three sets that they had left. Ben never even knew he left the house. David wins Dad of the year.
Rio liked the boxes. We got one of those laser pointers for him which he likes too.
The boys got gaming chairs from Grammie and Grampie.
And Emily really wanted a guitar, but I kept telling her it was too expensive. So, she was super surprised when she opened this.
And David was more than happy to try it on.
She looks so cute!
And this was our front yard this morning. So peaceful and perfect.
I got a foot spa bath for Christmas, but I couldn't take off my toenail polish since I just painted my fingernails, so David did it for me. He's a keeper!
And he took the kids sledding while I cleaned up the Christmas chaos!
We have a ham and potatoes in the oven and it's been a perfect peaceful Christmas!
