Whew, 3 Christmas celebrations down and now we are buried under empty boxes, those darn wires that are on every gift and wrapping paper. Everywhere. I honestly don''t know where we will put it all. Christmas Eve was spent with my side of the family as usual. It is fun being on the grown up side of it watching all of the little kids tear through their presents. Highlights at my mom''s were a stuffed Perry the Platypus from my parents for Pierce (from a Disney show) and a visit from Santa where Mallory told him that she wanted a boat. My mom''s cousin Mike is a very talented woodworker and he made all of the little girls in the family beautiful cradles that his wife Cindy put beautiful little amish quilts in for their babies. This cradle will be around for a long time Im sure! Extra cuteness at my mom''s this year came in the form of my cousin Brad''s 7 month old baby Madilyn and my mom''s puppy Bella (that she puts clothes on).
This morning the kids actually slept until about 7. We did the Santa thing and Mallory was so happy to see her easel and her paint and Pierce scored his Nintendo DS....and talked about it and played it all. day. long. We headed to Joe''s mom and dad''s for our final leg of Christmas and the kids were spoiled there as well. Joe and I are sitting on the couch surrounded by STUFF and thankfully have 2 more days off work to put it all away.
