Christmas = Amazing, fun, succesful, tasty, memorable, AWESOME, tiring, exhausting,
Yea those words work, I could probably think of a hundred more or so, but that will do LOL
So after my last blog post, I was up all night. First I did the presents under the tree, filled stockings, and wrapped the wonderful HUGE bag of presents I had forgotten about 0.o So my plan of not being up all night totally didn't pan out hahaha.
I got all the sweets I had baked packed in the car and boxed up all the cooking supplies I needed to put Christmas dinner together. (I did the hosting at Dad's house) And as I was leaving at 6 in the morning to go put the turkey in.....Roxy woke up. She screamed "Santa Came!!!!!" and woke up her sisters to come looking......
They all flew into the living room in no time flat......Not even enough time to fully wake up, Stevie came out eyes closed and sat there for a good 4/5 minutes before bothering to look at the tree.Ana came up, hugged me and says "I just want a hug mom" and then turned back to her bedroom and curled under her blanket without even looking at the tree HAHAHAHA
About two minutes later she turned back all excited.
This was my 5 minutes after wake up photo ROFLMAO
So I rushed off to pop the turkey in, and let them have at the stockings first. When I came back- we all got caught up in the excitement and paper flinging LOL - I did manage to grab a couple pictures...but mostly we were too busy trying to keep up hahaha:
Afterwards I went up to my Dad's to clean and cook, while the rest went off to another In-laws lunch. But after wrapping, cleaning and cooking the work and time away from them for the first part of the day turned out to be totally worth it.
The turkey and ham were both AMAZINGLY good. All the fixings and everything were just delicious. I sat at the "kids" table this year and the convos were so hilarious. I got to talk to my sweet (and sassy) niece and just enjoy the brilliant minds of children. We were gone til we couldn't take anymore- and the kids were WAY tired! LMAO
So after like 8:30 and getting the food put away and such....we came home to the disaster central LMAO
I opted for some snuggle time after some quick picking up here and there.
Well that snuggle time turned into snooze fest.
Me to Joe...."So how did things go at your Dads".....head hits pillow......ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Turkey and Sleep Deprivation coma commenced! LMAO
O and in case you are wondering.....This is what I managed to get gifted to me this year for Christmas.
I soooooooooooooo Love my family and their gift for just "knowing" me! This momma will be looking and smelling fly, all while scrapping and apping up a storm this year ;)
I hope your Christmas was amazing!
