I need to get caught up on my blog! We had a nice Christmas morning. Thomas was the first one up at 6:30 and we woke the others up at 6:45. We had church at 9:00 so we had to get going.
We had the kids presents from Santa with their stockings in Santa piles. They had fun going through their stockings then we took turns opening presents.
Jim & I got the kids bikes for their present from us. Jim went out on Black Friday, well really Thursday night and got the bikes for a really good price.
Matthew was pretty upset about the bike. We got it on video and it is funny. He cried and said, “but I didn’t ask Santa for a bike!!” He loves his bike now, but one of those fun Christmas memories. Jim surprised me with a nice perfume gift set and my ticket to see Kenny and Tim in Dallas with Brandy this summer. I got him a belt and new white shirt. It was a smaller Christmas for us this year but we had so much fun getting the kids presents we don’t really miss giving each other a lot of gifts.
We had Grandma DeVaux’s yummy Christmas bread, hot chocolate and some candy from the stockings for breakfast. We got dressed quickly and went to church.
After church the kids had fun playing with all their new toys. The boys got lots of Legos so they were busy building things all day. The girls had fun with their dollhouse and other toys. We had Grandma & Grandpa DeVaux and Oscar & Tara over for lunch. I was too busy cooking to take pictures of the yummy food, but here is what we had: Balsamic Brown Sugar glazed pork tenderloin, roasted red potatoes, fresh green beans, Mom’s spinach salad, and rolls. I made a chocolate éclair cake for dessert. It was all yummy and we had fun visiting and enjoying the good food. It was a nice Christmas weekend.
