the jolly fat man in red

The jolly, fat man was good to my kids this year. They are spoiled, that is a fact no one can deny. They received presents from us (obviously), their Aunt Jackie and cousin Jason, from Grandma and Papa, Aunt Peggy and from their Great-Grammy and Grampy.

We were awoken by Anthony hitting Tom and telling him, "It's Christmas!" We told them to run and brush their teeth so we could wake up the sick child we call Alex. We all came downstairs and the boys jumped right into sorting presents and tearing into them. We set up the video camera and recorded the tree, which we hope that the boys were in front of for the majority of the time it was on. I haven't played it back yet, so I'm not sure how much good video we got. I took a picture of the tree this morning, but none of the boys opening their presents. I meant to, but about halfway through the present opening ceremony, Alex laid on me with his DS in hand and new DS game. So, I didn't move for a good 20 minutes or so.

It's been a lazy day, almost doesn't feel like Christmas since there isn't anyone to visit or talk to but who's here. Tom's Great Aunt S wanted us to come over today, but we just wanted to be able to stay in our pajamas all day and let the boys play with their new toys. It's cold and rainy too, I'd much rather stay indoors. We are supposed to go over and see her tomorrow.

It's about that time to start all the side dishes for dinner. I have to make a list later of what the boys got and from whom so we can send Thank You cards since we aren't there to thank anyone. Tom is busy playing CoD4, someone from his mom's house is supposed to get on to play with one of the boys. So we'll see how long he hogs the controller. lol

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
