Christmas Recap

Every year Christmas just gets better and better when you have small children. This year Oliver really got it. He was so full of excitement he even woke up Christmas EVE morning and came running into our room saying, "IT'S CHRISTMAS"!!! His reaction on Christmas morning was just priceless, I had to show you this short clip of him waking up.

Sean and I of course stayed up pretty late that night setting up.
well, I guess I just watched...
I mean look at those muscles...
he's HOT!!!
Okay anyway, enough of that :)
Lily woke us up at 3am. We told her she needed to go back to bed for a few more hours. So she sat awake in her bed for two hours before coming in again. So 5am it was.
We set out these pictures for the kids to see, and boy were they excited.
I'm sure you've heard of the website you can make these on, but just in case you haven't, it's called Elf Cam.
That morning our house quickly went from this...
to this...
It took me two days to get it back to normal again, but we sure had a lot of fun.

I got Sean a new ipad (because the kids have kind of claimed his existing one), and Sean got me these...
I know what you're thinking, it's exactly what I was thinking when I opened it. I was like, uh, what the heck are these!
Then I read the card he gave me. It said something about him not knowing what it was like to watch an entire movie thinking the main actor was George Clooney only to find out it was Mel Gipson all along. Basically what he was saying was that my eye sight sucks and for Christmas he was giving me a new set up eyes. In other words he payed for me to get Lasik eye surgery.
Creative right :)
So yes, I have bad eyes and I NEVER wear my glasses or contacts. I hate them, so I just get used to seeing things a little blurry :), which can be a little embarrassing sometimes. Like for example, I'll be out at the store or something and I THINK I see someone I know, so I wave and smile. Then once I get up close and see the confused look on the persons face, that's when I think, well maybe I should start wearing my contacts.
We all had an amazing Christmas. I love my little family so much and can't imagine life without them.
