What A Christmas!!!

WOW!! We had a great Christmas! I had no idea our Christmas family celebrating would last for 3 days with 4 different families.

We had Christmas with my Hubby's family on Christmas Eve. That lasted from about 11:00 am until 5:30 pm. We had a great day with loads of food. The ham I looked forward to was sooooo good. I even took a good bit home. (His Mom made extra just for me!) The kids had more gifts and candy than they needed.

We then went home and looked on the computer to track Santa. When he got to South America Will ran to bed! Santa was coming!!!

Christmas morning was the best ever! We got Will up at 7:45 am and told him Santa had come. He hollered all the way to the living room ( about 7 steps), and yelled "A Popcorn Machine!". He loved it.

He never asked about that crazy dinosaur that drips of a mountain!

He opened all his gifts one at a time. I videoed the entire thing. He was so cute. He didn't get a lot, but to him he got the world! With his popcorn machine he got a CARS couch, a Bob the Builder and Wall E movie, and lots of small tractors. He also got pj's, a Wall E toy, Bob the Builder toys, CARS toys, markers, and way too much candy! Santa must have thought he was good.

Then off we went to my family's Christmas. We had some great fried turkey and got to see most of my family. We where tired by the time we got home. We tried out Will's popcorn machine and started one of his movies. That's when the dvd player gave out:( About 3 minutes after we realized we would not be watching a movie that night Hubby's phone rang. A friend of ours invited us to her family's Christmas to go on a hay ride and caroling! Will has never been on a hay ride yet and I love caroling. So off we went. We stayed there until 11:00 pm! Hubby and his friends played the guitar and the kids played until we couldn't go anymore.

Saturday we slept late. Then off we went to the same friends house to visit with his brother who we have not seen in over 3 years. Little did we know they would have his family's Christmas that same time. We didn't bring a gift or anything for anyone! Apparently they had planed this though, because they had gifts for Will. Who knew we had such great family and friends! We stayed at their house until 12:00 am!

WOW! Where we tired! Sunday Hubby's Dad woke us up. He came to visit. We went to church and then we had to go get Will a new dvd player. We came home wore out! I started to clean my house, but had to stop to cook or Sunday night Tacos!

The only down side to all this is that the Saints lost their game:( They still have a great record though:) They'll win next week!!!!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!!!! I will have more stories and pictures later!
