Christmas in our land…

Christmas was celebrated in our home and went off without a hitch. Ashton woke up promptly at 7am to come in and greet us good morning. Mom and Dad popped right up and said, “I wonder if Santa arrived?” Ashton didn’t catch that there were gifts out under the tree when he walked to our room. So we looked out our bedroom door and what did our wondering eyes see? TONS OF PRESENTS!!! Auntie A was here as well. So first thing we had to do was grab Auntie and Ethan and show them that the man in Red came!

You wouldn’t know the economy was in turmoil at this house. Nope, not at all. Mom and Dad opted out this year and simply had everyone provide for the kids. BEST thing we could have ever done. They got so much stuff, plus, plus, plus.

The favorite toy this year from Ashton had to be the electrical guitar he got. Hands down, it’s his favorite. And what a steal…we found it on clearance many months ago and grabbed it on a whim, only paying $5 for a $100 guitar…or something crazy like that ๐Ÿ™‚ I sure make myself proud when I find those deals!
Then at the last minute, I posted that a friend sold me something…well it was a kitchen. Santa had me pick it up for him. Well when Ashton seen it, he said, “Mommy, that’s not for me, that’s for girls, it’s pink!” HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA….he loves to cook. So this will come in lovely once his pink fear leaves his head!

Santa also remembered to bring Ashton his requested cake with marshmallows, belt, and balloons. That Santa, I tell ya, he sure is a good guy.

Ok, next kido…Ethan, oh my goodness, Ethan didn’t know what to do with all the presents yesterday. He received so many gifts under the tree that infant toys are coming out our ears! Honestly! I did NOT mean for this to happen. Aunt B bought Ethan a laptop and GG got one for Ashton (HA!! totally not on purpose either), GG also bought E a huge shape sorter castle, and Gram & Popi bought all musical requested items, by yours truly.

If I listed everything they got, you’d click off my blog and go puke. So I’ll show you with this….

Remember, this is just OUR house…not Gram’s house…and there we brought home 2 LARGE boxes and the laundry basket FULL to the brim!

Cheers…at our YUMMY dinner, Prime Rib and all the yummies to go with!

It wouldn’t be Christmas without sharing a family cold. Aunt B arrived on Monday not feeling well, when AT & E picked it up right after, then of course, Mommy gets it. Thankfully Dad hasn’t got hit by the bug yet. Next on the list came Gram and GG….ugh…can it get worse? YES, IT CAN! BLU GOT IT TOO, the dog ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, and at the end of the day, this is what happens to 3 year olds.

I hope ALL of your Christmas’ was just as wonderful as ours.
