The kids were really excited for Christmas this year. Tucker kept talking about how he was going to "dash" out of his room to get the presents. So I thought getting up at 6:30 was a good idea. I wanted to be there when they got up. Too bad our kids didn't wake up and I think it was around 8 that I couldn't take it anymore and Bob and I went and woke them up. I guess they were just so worn out from all the playing that went on at grandma's house.
We had a good time opening presents. Bob and the kids got me 10 bags of mint m&ms! I love how Tucker got really excited about giving presents to his siblings. Oh and Bob and I kind of forgot to get Scarlett presents. We weren't worried about it because she has so many toys and we were just going to pick up a few things at Good Will when christmas got closer but we totally forgot. The night before we went to my moms house we remembered and found a few things with Tucker and Penelope that they could give to her. Everything she got from us, were toys we already had but she didn't care.
Bob, I and the kids all got spoiled this year. And we aren't very good about thank you cards but I do want to thank everyone who thought of us this year. So thanks. It was a fun morning, and when more family came to my moms house we all sat and watched each other open presents.
Bbbbrrr... it was cold.
I forget to take pictures of New Year's Eve but we all made treats, played games, and hung out. I didn't really want to keep my kids up until midnight so we had a pretend countdown at 8:30 after which we had a huge silly string fight. It was fun.
