We hope all of you had a wonderful day yesterday with family and friends. Our day was relatively calm considering the kids were excited. No one was awake until 7:45 so we didn't have an early morning wake up. Whew. Once everyone was sugared up on doughnuts, the present opening began. Anna Grace and Abby received a playset of cleaning toys and tools, Disney stuff, Barbies and Barbie horses, movies, clothes, and books. I don't know what Santa was thinking since within an hour, our house was strewn with little pieces of stuff. Katie's big gift was a hair straightener and Alex's was a guitar---or so they thought. They also received Guitar Hero for the PS2 and spent the remainder of the day playing the games! Katie complained of a headache later in the day. Hmm, stare at a video game all day and that's what happens! We had some good friends over for a casual dinner last night and enjoyed hanging out, playing games, and eating. The kids all slept in late today. Since school starts on January 3, I guess they can enjoy a few more days of down time.
Before the onslaught!
Just look at all the little pieces! What was Santa thinking?
The first gift...
