Whew....Christmas was great this year, but I must say i'm glad it's over!!! It all started the week before Christmas at my granpa's with a fun family gathering. We played games, had some good food and exchanged gifts. We always spend Christmas Eve at Clint's parents house....I call his mom "Betty Crocker" because her cooking is wonderful! We enjoyed the famiy time and of course Emma had a blast opening presents! When we got home, we put cookies and milk out for Santa and it was time for bed!....I had the priviledge of staying up until 2 a.m. getting things ready for Christmas day!!! Emma is usually a late sleeper (8 or 9) , but I guess she was to excited and woke us up at 7 ready to go! The first thing she did was gasp and say "Mommy, Daddy, Santa ate it all!!" We had so much fun watching her face light up with every gift....everytime she opened one she said "This is great or I love it, Thank you!" She even helped baby brother open his presents! We went to my Aunts house with the rest of the family for lunch and then we went back to my moms for our family gift exchange and dinner. Emma had a great time playing with her new toys and "Hunka Brian"....that's really what she calls my brother!! So cute! Of course the kids got way to many presents and i'm still trying to find somewhere to fit everything!!!! It was a wonderful Christmas for our family and I look forward to making lots of memories in the years to come!
