Our little Christmas elf!
Bri and Jonah with Aunt Mantha!
Christmas morning dawned too early (especially since we didn't get in bed until after 2:00 am due to Midnight mass and talking to Santa!) and snow less! We were supposed to at least get flurries, but once again we got jipped! I actually had to wake everyone up to open presents if you can believe it! They were zonked, but once they got up they were so excited to see what Santa brought and to tear open their gifts. Our guidelines for Christmas presents are: 1 toy or game, one book set or movie and one outfit and jammies. Santa brought Brianna three Disney princess dress up sets, complete with tiaras, slippers and purses. Jonah got a ride on/push Tonka truck, to help him start walking.
Then around noon we headed to my mom's for Brunch and more gifts. Everyone pretty much took a nap and then we woke up and made dinner and then around 6 we headed to the Wauguaman's (Steven's father's family) for more Christmas! See why I called this "Recovering from Christmas"!?!?!? But it was absolutely wonderful and I enjoyed every moment (okay, well, most moments anyway!)
I hope your Christmas was just as great and that you'll be able to recover in time for New Years' Eve. Oh yeah, we've got big plans for New Year's Eve :P
