Oh my gosh, Christmas morning was SO fun!! I will never, ever forget the wonder and surprise on the kids' faces as they see the presents under the tree. Lorelai looked at the tree, looked at me and said " now that's what I call Christmas!" So funny. She cracks me up! Connor does this funny surprised gasp whenever he gets excited and he kept doing that while he ran to grab at all of the presents. Santa left a few of Connor's gifts unwrapped so he of course enjoyed that!
They were so cute playing and enjoying their gifts. We talked about the reason for the holiday, and we made family breakfast. This year it was sausage and gravy over biscuits with scrambled eggs. YUM! I lived on that stuff when I was pregnant with Connor. Nothing else seemed even remotely appetizing. It is strange what morning sickness does to you. We said a special grace and wished Jesus a happy birthday. Even Connor chimed in with his "Amen".
To make our day even better we went to our cousin's house in Virginia to celebrate and have dinner with them. They made a yummy lasagna. The kids played Wii for most of the day. They have a Wii Fit and one of the activities in there is hula hooping. Connor was trying to mimic everyone doing that and it was SO cute and funny!! He loves to do what everyone else does. It is hard to believe he is 21 months!!
I hope everyone else had a wonderful holiday, whatever holiday you celebrate. And I hope you got to spend some time with family or friends, or both!
Now we are looking forward to a New Years Eve party that we are all invited too! I will let you know how it goes :)
