Christmas day....


Christmas morning was funny this year! From the time Tiff was little, she used to yell down the stairs for us to get up, so she could go in the living room and see if Santa showed up last night. Of course, that was always at 5:30 am, and we were tired, cuz we had been up all night doing the stockings, arranging her presents, etc. But she's ALWAYS come downstairs before 6 am on Christmas. But this year, we got to sleep til 9:30! Then Tiff came downstairs, and laid across our bed (on top of our legs! Smoosh!!). Then Truman came in & jumped up & laid down on my legs too. That was it, no more 'family bed' for me! We got up, exchanged presents with each other (we ALL got really cool presents!). I got Kevin a ton of gift cards to Best Buy, we got Tiff clothes, cell phone gift certificate, etc...they gave me clothes, tons of stuff!
We went to Kev's mom & dad's about 11:30, and got ready to eat breakfast (they always make a huge breakfast for everybody, cuz we need to keep our strength up to open all the presents!). Then Ken walked in from the back porch with a little round birthday cake, so we all sang our happy birthday dear Jesus! That's become a tradition in the last few years! And, no, we aren't doing it 'disrespectfully' or anything. As a matter of fact, I'd bet Jesus is laughing, too! Then we go in the living room, and it's so full of presents, you can hardly walk! It takes us about 4 or 5 hours to open everything, cuz we take turns, and go one present at a time, and this year, the twins are 4, so they are REALLY fun! They got to pick who opens a present next. And everybody absolutely LOVES to buy presents for them! HowEVer...by the time anybody else gets to, Kat & Benji already have bought them everything in the world!! But...Tiffany is really good at picking stuff out for them, especially for the 'girl twin'! Actually, I think she just picks what SHE wants to play with ;-) .They're looking forward to their next 'slumber party', because Kev & I gave M a Dora The Explorer tent..and that thing is SO huge! It said it fits 4 people in there, but, honestly, we had the twins & about 4 adults in there! We actually took a good 4 hours to open presents, and Kev's mom & dad made dinner after that! His mom & dad are both great cooks, and his dad really likes to cook, he does that just for fun!! He's always bringing over food! Which is good, cuz I don't cook!!
Tiffany got a game for Christmas that I haven't gotten to play yet. We'll probably have to all get together and do that soon..it's called 'Apples To Apples' , and Tiff says 'it's the funnest game ever!!' Of course, she was real excited about the 'Newlyweds-Final Season' dvds I gave her too...

I just put a picture of a game I forgot to ask for up there...

BoUnCeS!! LibbY!

Okay...I'll get to 'The Shoes At The Top Of The Telephone Pole' tomorrow...
