Holiday Recap

Christmas at our house proved to be a wonderful day! Santa came and left the boys their most requested gifts and a few surprises as well.

Christmas eve:
Jed and Kathy came to join in the festivities with us and as always that made the day more special. We had a nice Christmas eve dinner of Chicken Cordon Bleu, homemade bread, caesar salad, cheesy potatoes and for dessert...triple layer chocolate cake (which ended up being double layer as one of the layers got stuck in the pan.) After dinner we had our annual Christmas reading complete with Christmas hymns and the boys got to open a few gifts. They got new Christmas pajama pants (that I can't believe I finished) and a few books from mom and dad. Then they got to open presents from Grandpa and Grandma in Utah. Erik and Cameron were thrilled when they discovered that they had been enrolled in the Lego Brickmaster club and they even got a couple of lego sets to start them off. Thanks Grandpa and Grandma M! Then from Grandma S, they opened a card with money in it for them to spend on whatever they wanted. Last, we started a Christmas puzzle and worked on that until it was time to check Norad to track Santa and off to bed.

Christmas day:
The boys waited until 7:00am to wake us (not too bad!) and then it was downstairs to see if Santa had come.

He came all right!

We had a great morning tearing open presents and sharing in the excitement of our boys!

What did I get for Christmas?

Brett did good!

Merry Christmas!
