Christmas Day: It's Going to Be a Loud Winter
Of course, Mr C failed this test and was up at 7:30 much to our chagrin. Really. We then tortured the kids for at least a half hour saying we couldn't go down yet as we had promised Santa eight thirty. Finally at eight, we gave in to peer pressure.
Miss A was in seventh heaven when she saw the guitar! Her screams were so loud I checked to make sure that the windows stayed in place. Miss M was giggling when she saw the digital camera for her and Mr C was surprised to find a weight set on the fireplace. Well in actuality it was just a single weight as Santa brought the rest downstairs to the bench. C is looking forward to some great matches on the Foosball Table he got and has already proven a worthy opponent. His mother no so much. I said it was due to the fact that I spent all my time in college studying or campaigning and his father obviously was off at parties!
It was a fun Christmas. No rush to get anywhere. No pressure to open presents in a hurry. Pecan Rolls and Cranberry Juice for Breakfast. A great brisket in the oven for Christmas Dinner and plans for Nana and Papa to come and enjoy a lazy afternoon of domino's and football games.
We had a wonderful Christmas season this year and were abundantly blessed with time with family and friends along with opportunities to bless others this year. I really could not have asked more.
Now, we just need to figure out who can teach Miss A how to play the guitar and I need to spend a little time working on my skills with the Foosball table. Thankfully, Miss M will be able to capture all the moments as I'll be busy covering my ears and using my feet to more my "guys" on the table.
