What a Great Time

Christmas Eve we get all dressed up and go to my Aunt and Uncle's house.

No, this was not at my house, tho I wish it was.
My Aunt ans Uncle's house is gorgeous!!!

We have an awesome dinner - prime rib!
I don't think my turkey-lovin Uncle and cousins
really appreciated how tasty it was.
I gladly would have taken the leftovers from them!

After church, we head back to their house for cookies and presents.

GG has decided THIS is how she wants to dress next Halloween.
She'll be a present.

Maybe someone else can take her trick-or-treating!

Christmas morning at our house was truly a good day, gift wise.
GG finally got the thing she's been asking for for 2 years now.

And I have discovered that we no longer see her
as her face is now buried in the screen.

Little Dude got the Dragon Tower
he's been drooling over the past few months.
I opened it this morning and I have never seen him so excited.
But I've discovered that certain toys need instructions
on how to open the darn box to get to the toy inside!

So now the only thing left to do is open and put away all the stuff we got.
I also need to undecorate.
I usually leave the stuff up for a while,
but the next few days are supposed to be warmer than normal,
so I might take advantage of it and bring the outside stuff in.

For now, I think I'm going to enjoy some leftover ham while I admire these beauties!

Merry Christmas to me!
I love the after Christmas sales!

Until next time...

WOW-- what a fantastic Christmas you had...my 3 boys got the DS this year too! I thought that they were fantastic-- they can send messages to each other-- How Fun!! But I have noticed that I have to ask them to put them down to speak to me-- Gonna have to set some limits.
