Then on to Christmas! The kids were like up on and off the entire night. Supposedly they were up at 3am and just sat and waited and read books until 5 - when they came in to ask if they can go down early (normal set time is 6:30.) We said sure - at 6. They came in a few times more, than it was finally 6 - or close to it. Let the Christmas crazy begin!
THIS GAME today. And we played it. And it was hilarious. I truly don't think I've laughed that hard in a really, really long time. I'm not sure what flavor Ben was eating this time . . . ?
THESE online and got them for Ben. Ha, they are hilarious. But wonderful, too. Kids kept using them all day long. They were a goofy hit. :)
Ben spoiled me with a new wheat-grinder, a super-duper immersion blender, and an awesome shirt. I got Ben a bunch of little things, plus his "big" gift of a coat. Well the other night he came back from clothes shopping - and he had gotten himself a coat. So I had to tell him what I had gotten him. Then he stewed for the next couple of days trying to figure out which coat he wanted . . . he couldn't make up his mind. Just tonight, he decided on the coat I had gotten him. :)
Anyways, we finished the day watching Elf.
It was another grand and blessed Christmas and I think the kids loved it.
