This Christmas was way more fun than last year. Well, having a house of very own with a fireplace MIGHT have had a little to do with it, but aside from our physical surroundings, JUSTIN was SO enthralled with everything Santa. He really caught on to it this year and was mostly excited about Santa's Reindeer. So carrots were a must and they insisted they get their green trees to be healthy and strong and while were at it, why not the rest of the veggies we had on hand! Cookies of course with a cup full of milk for good Ol' Saint Nick.
Then we opened the traditional jammies and slippers! Buzz Lightyear PJ's and Spiderman Slippers! (the only ones I could find day after Thanksgiving at Walmart for 3 bucks!)
Grandma Stacy got her traditional calendar. Kari started this one year and now it's a must have every year. We love Christmas!!
Oh yeah, and did I say that Christmas Day was spent at MY HOUSE THIS YEAR!?! For the first time since Jeff and I have been married we didn't travel on Christmas eve at 10:00pm from Modesto to Camino (2 hrs). It was so great to be at our house and get to wake up here Christmas morning and stay here for the day! THANK YOU to my family for driving to come and be with us!! I haven't felt so much Joy in a long time. It was perfect.
While we were waiting for the roast to cook, we watched Christmas Vacation (a family favorite) and here's dad, just picture him saying, "I'm get you something, (click) REEEAL NIIICE"--and they apron was worn for me. Dad's such a sport!! I think he looks great!
Zach got a Razor rip rider?? And you can like spin out in it...it's pretty sweet. Here's grandma trying it out. Kari, you should post the video of grandma!! It was great.
