I hope you are all having a wonderful and fun christmas! Hubby and I were up till 11:30 getting presents wrapped and placed under the tree and stockings filled. Then we watched some tv for an hour and a half just to wind down before we headed to bed around 1am. Of course we would start to hear noises from the kids by 5:30am... we stayed in bed till 7am right after our youngest came knocking on our door. "It's 7:00 mommy and daddy, well it's just about 7:00, it's 6:56- come out so we can open presents!" (we had told them they couldn't wake us up till 7:00am) lol!
Santa was very kind this year and brought lots of wanted items. I even had an amazing gift of a DSLR camera... a dream of mine to have for the past few years. :)
We were done with unwrapping and were playing with our new "toys" all before 9am! I'm forseeing an early bedtime tonight for the over-excited kids that could not wait to get up this morning!
I've managed to snap a mear 90 pictures so far in trying out the new camera. I'm excited to get it outside and use the zoom lense and see what I can do with that. :)
Yesterday I didn't leave the house once (that NEVER happens!), and barely left the kitchen. We have a Christmas tradition that we have our big dinner on Christmas Eve, so I spent the entire day in the kitchen making frog eyed salad, cheesy augratin potato's, sweet potato's with a crunchy topping and marshmallows on top, egg nog cheesecake, chocolate chip cookies for Santa, and our favorite homemade rolls. Since I did all the work yesterday, today I can sit back and relax and play with our christmas presents and just pop the leftovers in the oven to warm up... no time for me in the kitchen today.
