Merry Christmas, Everyone!
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
Christmas gets more and more fun each year as the boys get older!
They were SOOOO excited this morning, OMG!
Last night, we went to Todd's cousin, Ryan and Leigh's house. They have two little boys and they all love to play together! So, we didn't get home until about 9:00 and by the time they calmed down, it was almost 10:00 when they fell asleep! That's when Mr. and Mrs. Claus went into action!
Will has this awesome train set called GeoTrax and it's been in the attic for about 6 months now because it totally took over our dining room and Cameron kept destroying it. Will has been begging us to get it down and put it together. Santa brought him a new addition to it, so we set the whole thing back up. For those that aren't familiar with GeoTrax, there are seriously 50 different ways to set it all up! Quite frustrating and overwhelming!! It took us about two hours and I'm still not completely happy with it, but oh well!
Santa brought Cameron a Big Wheel! So, Todd is trying to put it together, which by the way, was not very easy and gets to the "big wheel" and we find out we're missing two pretty important parts. Thanks Amazon.com! So, we weren't able to put it together and I'll have to call tomorrow and get them to send me the missing parts. Nothing like setting up a "big" toy on Christmas Eve only to find out you can't. I wasn't very happy, lemme tell ya! Thankfully, Cameron could care less and doesn't understand the whole "Santa" concept, so it's all good for now! He'll be excited when we finally get it together though!
So, Todd and I didn't get to bed until after 1am. Fast forward to 4am and Will is standing next to the bed, right in my face, saying "Mommy, Santa Claus came last night!!!!!" I wanted to throw up! Haha! Three hours of sleep is not good! So, I told him Santa wasn't done yet and he better go back to sleep! He did, thank goodness! Cam was up around 5:30, but stayed in bed. Then, we were ALL up (well, minus Peyton) at 6:30 opening presents! My house looks like a tornado hit it!! Toys are everywhere and we have no more room!! I think it's time to have a garage sale and get rid of LOTS of toys! It's outta control!
So, anyways...it was such a great morning! Just seeing the excitement on their faces...it's priceless! And it will only get better! Next year will definitely be lots of fun!
Today we are going to Mimi's house for lunch. And of course, they'll get more presents! Oh, to be a kid again...
I haven't uploaded pics yet, but as soon as I do, I'll post them!
