Wow! I didn’t realize it’d had been quite so long since my last post. I had meant to do a Christmas post prior to Sophie’s trip (more on that later), but somehow I didn’t manage to work it in.
So anyway! Christmas was actually quite good this year. Jim was off for Christmas Eve which made doing Santa presents so much easier! We still ended up staying up to nearly 3am getting everything done, but it was sooo worth it! We decided to wrap everything to slow down the kids present opening, which was a brilliant idea really. They actually stopped and looked at everything instead of running from one toy to the next.
Check out Flickr for the photos, there’s too many to post here!!
Jim’s Dad and Judy spent Christmas morning with us. We had a grand time with them here! Jim’s Dad helped Jim feed which was great fun for Jim and we spent the better part of the morning in a mock Nerf dart gun battle!! It was great fun!!
Jim’s Mom and Dan came over in the early afternoon which was nice. The boys have loved their little mobile car playsets! Sophie and I spent quite sometime coloring in her giant coloring book and the stickers, as always, were a BIG hit!
Unfortunately Kyle’s crew came down with a neverending stomach bug (which is why I posted the previous entry, as they kept saying they WOULD have a good Christmas regardless!!) and were unable to come down for Christmas, or the day after, or the day after or even the day after that!!!
But, luckily, they did get better! So Christmas ensued once again, only Jim, Sophie and I were not here as we were in DC (expect another post soon).
All in all it was a brilliant holiday! The kids are still playing hard with all their presents and we’re not yet willing to take down the trees as they’re just too pretty and we’re not ready to let go of the Christmas magic just yet.
