Christmas 2006

Christmas was so fun. We were ready - thanks to Mumsie and Grandaddy setting us up with the Santa Plate and cup. The tree looked beautiful to us - thanks to all the wonderful ornaments Mumsie gives us every year.

We also set out carrots for the reindeer (as promised in the letter) - but Fat Santa ate one of them and left the nub on the plate - the girls didn't seem to find that as amusing as we did and wondered which reindeer got left out!
We had a really wonderful time Christmas morning. It was very relaxing to our suprise. After the 6am Santa frenzy, we opened all the presents. We spent the rest of the day playing every single game possible - Hullabalu, Twister, Checkers, Storybook, Tic, Tac, Toe and MORE...!
Santa brought Lexi an American Girl doll this year. She did not put the doll down ONE time(even while playing games - I had to watch it during twister!). We had to pry it out of her hands to eat our "dunch" so she wouldn't get food all over it. Santa also brought matching outfits for the girl's dolls & themselves. Lexi tore off her jammies, put on her outfit, woke up this morning and asked if she could wear it again.

Anderson had fun and loved his stocking stuffers the most. But, he really really loved Gma's Dolphin she made him...!! He knawed on that for at LEAST 10 minutes or more...!!

The girls LOVED their scarves from Gma, too!!

Ainsley was so so sweet. She opened her Care Bear and said, "thank you so much sissy, i wanted my own care bear, thank you!" She opened her Leapster and said, "thank you so much, i wanted my very own Leapster, thank you!" She said the same thing for 1 other thing although I can't remember what it was right now. She had a great time.

To make the day even more perfect for my type-A personality - Stan took care of Anders while I cleaned and organized. THEN we reorged the girls room. Stacked bunk beds and set up the Fancy Nancy lamp Santa brought. The lamp is in the corner of the pic. This deserves honerable mention because I am proud to say that my husband finally understands the virtue of buying something because it's a good price, even when you don't need it! I'm so proud and it only took 14 years (sniff, sniff). Btw, if anyone needs a light for their house, we have several purchased from a shi shi light store here in big D.

And LAST, but not least, perched from a spot of perfection, watching all the Christmas Day happenings was my most favorite gift I have received in the last 10 years. Thank you Grandaddy, THANK YOU!! It was beautiful. If YOU do not know what Electric Sex in the Window is, SHAME ON YOU. You go right now and rent A Christmas Story.
