Christmas is always more fun when you add children! Finding that perfect gift that makes them squeal with delight, having them shop for each other when they are thinking of what would make the other person happy, having them beg you to go to bed at 7 pm- that's pure magic!
The rule was no one up before 7:30 am (we have gotten really lazy over the holidays!) Sam just couldn't wait any longer after 7 am, however. We made them all wait it out, anyway- in our room and then on the stairs. They were going nuts and kept trying to sneak down. It was a magical day. Joseph kept saying, "We hit the Mother Load!"
We have goodies galore and I am at least 2 pounds heavier. Sam lost a tooth in a cinnamon roll and so the magic continued with a visit from the Tooth Fairy.
We have Legos everywhere. We scare the dog with the remote control truck. We have played Wheel of Fortune (which I won!) and Family Feud (which we stunk at!) I gave my final lesson to my 14-15 year old Sunday School class. I get a new one next week. We downloaded lots of new apps for my phone and Emma's new Ipod touch. Right now the kids are playing with their friends while I loose at Scrabble to my phone! Could anything be more magical then this Christmas holiday? Rob enjoying my new slippers.
