We had our first official Christmas celebration on the 20th at my mom's house with my family and sisters and their families. It was a ton of fun watching the youngest ones open their gifts. They each got the 1 thing that they had truly wanted, and that just made their day.
Tuesday night the boys and I went to visit Nite Lights in a neighboring town. The fairgrounds are decorated with 1 1/2 miles of lights. Santa even is there to visit with the kids. Simon was nervous, so luckily dad was there to help him out. Unfortunately the presents under the huge tree weren't for Simon. So he went out kicking and screaming. Great times there. Plus, at our favorite resturant McDonald's they had cute Chipmunk toys on display as the Happy Meal toy. Well, guess what? No Chipmunk toys available. Another downer for the night.
Today, Christmas Eve, Joey is out doing some last minute shopping and me and they boys are still in jammies just hanging out. It's going to be a relaxing day. We need to rest up for all the excitement of tomorrow.
Have a very Merry Christmas!
