Merry Christmas Everyone!

Good Morning!  Merry Christmas!

Yes, it's a little after 7am here and the tree is all done and we're busy building Star Wars Lego.  OK, the boys are doing that and I'm sitting here with my coffee! 

Kyle was first up at 3:30am this morning wanting to do the tree and we managed to hold him off until 6am.  I'm not sure that he actually slept any more, but at least we weren't up then.  I don't think I slept much after about 4:30-5ish since I had the boys in my bed rolling around and trying to sleep.  Nathan actually slept more after coming in, but Kyle didn't.  George went and slept in Nathan's bed for a bit!

Kyle was so excited when I told him that we could get up!  I asked him to go wake George and he did, but then he went flying into the living room - without us!  No pictures!  hee hee  I got him to come back since Nathan wasn't even awake yet.  Once Nathan was awake, he did the same thing as Kyle and went shooting into the living room without us.  Once again, no pictures!  I know, it's not that big a deal, but it's just funny for me. 

We all went in and opened stockings first.  Santa did a wonderful job of finding lots of little things we needed.  I even got a Build-A-Bear card for the Rudolph I wanted!  Yes, I wanted one!  After stockings, I went and popped in the Overnight Apple Cinnamon French Toast casserole I made last night.  I hope it's good and it sure smells good right now!

Then, it was on to opening the presents under the tree and it was a whirlwind.  Of course, with Kyle leading the show, all went smoothly, but he was whipping through his presents!  Kyle kept handing presents to Nathan to open and poor Nathan couldn't keep up.  Kyle had stuff ripped open, ooohed and aahed and moved on to the next one.  And they were both seriously spoiled as usual.  Santa was good enough to bring them the Star Wars Lego they asked for and that's what they're working on now.  Thinking it'll be a bit of a long project.  Kyle is also dying to play the online Lego Universe game we got them, but that'll have to wait for now since it had to be loaded on the computer and everything. 

George and I got spoiled this year too!  I got Old Navy gift cards since almost none of my clothes fit anymore, some bath stuff, a small box of chocolates and an iPod Touch!  How cool is that?!  Lovin' it!  I can't wait to have some time to play with it!!  I broke down and got George the XBox 360 he wanted and Santa brought him a router since the one he had was broken.  He got some other odds and ends too, but those were the big things.  All of us spoiled for sure!  Once again!

It's funny watching the boys because it's like they can't concentrate on any one thing for more than a minute.  They played with Lego for a bit.  Then Nathan had his Dinosaur Train toys out and all talking to each other.  Kyle pulled out the hot air popcorn maker and put it together.  Now they're trying to figure out the walkie talkies that Tracy and Brian got them.  No attention span whatsoever here!

Well, better go check on breakfast and see if I can play with my iPod for a bit!  Need to make my candied yams as well and then we'll be going to Uncle Steve and Auntie Laura's for dinner to everyone.  I feel like I need a nap already!

Hope everyone is spending the day with family and friends!  Enjoy!
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Coll! Thanks for sharing your wonderful morning with us. We had a great day yesterday and started a new Christmas Day tradition with all the boys - a huge water bomb fight! They complained at the end that they wanted more bombs - we'd done 170 of them, so if they want more next year, they can do them themselves! Hey, how was that apple casserole thing? Sounds great! Hugs to you all.
