Happy Christmas

It is Christmas Eve, 2010 and we had the pleasure of entertaining our children, grandchildren and friends this morning. We had a wonderful breakfast, a meat lovers feast, with 3 lbs of bacon and a ham steak to go along with scrambled eggs and biscuits and sausage gravy. Yummo!

The boys were so patient and well behaved as we waited until all of us were through eating before we did the gift exchanges.  I played Santa this year, handing out the gifts to all. Mason was my little helper. "Here Papa, this one's for you."
Spiderman bikes and Lightning McQueen helmets were the big hit! Mason took right to it, but little Braydon's legs weren't quite long enough to make the full rotation. A little help from Jeremy was all he needed. They should have a good nap today.
It was a good year, and we are so excited for new things, good things, to happen in 2011. Merry Christmas all, I hope your Christmas is as happy as mine.

Dear Santa, I've been a good boy.

Last night we went straight from daycare to the mall to see Santa. Oh my! What a wonderful night for Gigi and Papa. We discovered that it was pet night with Santa, so the line was already long with people and their pets waiting to see him. My boys both love animals, so it was a welcome distraction and made our wait pleasant. Braydon discovered that dogs have peepee's too and announced that to one of the ladies holding her male dachsund. She and I giggled. Mason told Santa he wanted him to bring Gigi a new ring (that's my boy) and asked for a "Thpider Man" toy for himself. On our way home, we drove through neighborhoods looking for Christmas lights which immediately became a contest on who had the most on their side of the car. Hmmm, I seem to remember the same contest between their mama and her brother when they were small. Some things never change. Merry Christmas to all of my sweet family and friends!
