Take Christmas for example....we had 6 stops in one day (including our house). Most people think we are crazy..but we LOVE this day. It's a day of fun, surprises, and a day of family and we wouldn't change it a bit.
So, here's our Christmas day!
First, we woke the kids up at 7 am and did Santa. Troy's grandmother spent the night (it's been a traditon the past 3 years) and I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, Owen, or Granny. Most kids count down to Santa....O counts down to Christmas Eve, when Granny has a spend the Night Night!
|She loves the gift Owen got her!|
|Dress take 2, the first one didnt make it too long!|
Troy and I always wait to do our Christmas together, and people think we are crazy, but this way we get to focus 100% on the kids during the morning and day, and focus on each other 100% in the evening. We tend to go way overboard on each other, but this year we put ourselves on a budget for each other....we both went over! ; ) But we were close, and better than we've been in the past!
Both kids were spoiled by all sets of family and friends and I'm not sure they got any duplicates!! Owent really enjoyed Christmas this year, he was excited about everything, even his socks that he got. Brynnleigh really didn't know what was going one, but she did enjoy playing with new toys and watching Owen.
Their favorites? - O's - his remote control cars and his Percy train. B - her singing Monkey from Owen and her dolls.
We hope you had a great Christmas and here's to 2012!!
