We went through what has definitely a family tradition..
A sleepover at the cousins place and the kids opening gifts from under the tree after breakfast.
The hungry lions in front of their prey knowing that in a matter of seconds they get to jump on it!
The carnage of wrapping paper after the cubs are done unwrapping the stuff..
What happened in between..
and this year (as most years) one of the dads gets two of the same gift. When your life is an open book, guess everyone knows what to get you for Christmas?!
The little one wrote stories for the parents. One was Snow White written in her own words with Daddy substituted for a bad guy!
and the other was a cute frog family story.
We hope all of you had a very merry Christmas and are enjoying the holiday season.
We are slowly checking things off our to do list...
For starters we knocked off
- last minute gift buying for the kids and
- watched Mission Impossible 4 on Christmas Eve!
The theaters were relatively empty and the movie was a blast!
We had a good time with the kids showing their happy smiling faces throughout the day!
Our local adventures and checking off lists goes on over the next few days. Just shudder at the thought that our next break will have to wait till Memorial day! That thought can take a backseat for now as we try to live in the present..
