Tell me what Santa brought you!
The best and the worst!!!!
I love to read about the worst ones!!!
We made Christmas cookies on Christmas Eve for the guy in the red suit!
Boys opened one present: new PJs and slippers for Christmas from my parents (safe to say they were happy):
I had a lovely day on Christmas. For the morning it was just us 4. The kids were so happy and amazed by everything. Coming down the stairs...they saw the cookies were gone from the plate we left for
We opened the many presents that were under the tree and had breakfast..croissants and pain au chocolat for everyone but me..boo hoo.
|This is when they opened THE gift the each asked Santa in person!|
|I was half awake....! Beautiful John Wooden book.|
|Of course Mini Urban had to get one guitar!!! A Paper Jam..those are very cool. |
(for the new readers who dont know our Keith Urban story it is here)
|He will not let ANYONE touch it.|
After a few hours of mommy sitting on the floor we got this and a major back pain:
Bill's dad came over for a late lunch and more gift opening. Our boys are lucky little guys. I hope they know it. I try to tell them over and over that they need to appreciate what they have.
On the 23rd we went to the movies and saw Arthur's Christmas. Loved it. On the way out we were stopped at a light and we saw a family of 4. The mom and dad had signs "Please help, no job have kids to feed". That made me so sad. It is not like I don't know there are people in trouble, of course I know it but when you see it, it is different. So we went to the closest grocery store and bought food for them. We drove back to the spot and they were gone. I was so disappointed and sad. We returned the next day and they were not there. I will go today again. I want my kids to know that there are kids who are not as fortunate as they are and I want my kids to know it is important to share with others.
Christmas has turned into this huge material holiday a long time ago and that part of it, I don't like. It gets to be too much and or never enough....
We had some special food for Christmas in the house, croissants, cookies, pies. I wanted to taste something just one little bite...of banana cream pie.....it was good but not worth the pain it caused me. I spent the whole night sick and yesterday all day in bed also sick. I don't know if it was just that or I had a stomach bug also...but it was no fun. So no running for 2 days in a row. Cannot remember the last time I did that. I stepped on the scale...down 3 lbs. Who does that on Christmas?? Boo Hoo.
Going for 3 shaky miles at the gym.
My legs feel like Jello.
