It's Christmas Morning - 12:54 a.m.
The turkey is in the oven - check out the recipe in this free Holiday Recipe cook book by Sue Gregg. The young men are over at Josiahs. Nolan stayed up to be able to be the first to say, "Merry Christmas". Mike is putting THIS together in the little boy's room. That allowed them to stay up and be a part of the festivities...but the thought is they'll fall asleep watching....soon?
BTW, this is Stacia's Christmas AND Birthday present and it fell within our budget. I found it online cheaper than what I was finding around town and had it shipped to Walmart for pick up - free shipping. We wanted to get it NOW so that she can enjoy it before all our things are packed up. LOL
Christmas is here...but Mom, here are a few shots for you and Dad from Christmas Eve/Day.
We got ahold of Mike's family today. They are also excited at all the news from our older children this week....and at the possibilities of grandchildren driving down to CA for a weekend. LOL
We went to see the Christmas Lights on the Concho. Mike would like to go back and walk it with the Nikon and the tri-pod....I didn't bother taking photos with the point and shoot. LOL
T-shirts for all
We opened Christmas Stockings....WE did NOT fill them - the kids did fill them. LOL
Yikes - look at those teeth
Alas, Bre loves them. ::snort:: I'm wondering what tomorrow will look like if 12 stockings made this much mess. LOL
I've been informed that "Gram's Cinnamon Rolls" are our traditional Christmas breakfast. Um....I'd forgotten. That means it's after 1:40 a.m. and I need to be up baking to have hot rolls by 8 a.m.
