IT'S CHRISTMAS

I'm still hanging by a thread.  Resting up during the day because Santa has to come!  Santa can NEVER get sick.

Jason's parents came over to give the kids their presents.  They got all outside gifts!  Basketball goal (which took ALL DAY to put up), ping pong table (which took ALL NIGHT to put up),  volleyball net, badminton, horseshoes, balls, frisbees, all kinds of outdoor games.  The kids loved it!



Us with our Birthday Girl!  11 years old!  Hard to believe!
Granny chooses the best PJs!
The Grinch steals Santa!

Eden does not like picture time!  But as you can tell...it's not about her!

The head banging has begun.

Let the chaos begin!!
We finished wrapping and stuffing stockings at 4:30 am

Jason said he wasn't going to sleep - so he fell asleep on the couch.  

I headed to bed at 5AM - my kids have never gotten up early on Christmas.  Early has been 8 or 8:30am

This year 6:45AM






So this time...I got the couch!  Woke up at 6:45am, went back to sleep from 8-10, went back to sleep from 3-8pm, went back to sleep at 10pm and slept until 10am the next day.
THEN, I was recovered from my strep.

He LOVES his coveralls!

This was Isaac's present (a paracord bracelet kit).  He said I could have it or give it to Noah!  HA!  He said he didn't ask for that!  He's very different from Mary!

Christmas at it's finest!  And yes...the mess wrapped around to the other living room.


 This year they didn't let me do stacks.  They wanted it all under the tree and I felt so bad and I was so tired I didn't make them get pictures with their stuff...which now I regret!

Granny and Grandaddy's Christmas

So I woke up with a fever.  I was really concerned I had the flu.  People at church were getting sick left and right!  It was crazy.  I could NOT be sick on Christmas!  So I woke up and went to the doctor.    Diagnosis was STREP.  I was so thankful flu was negative.  After antibiotics and a shot I headed home to "rest" until we had to leave for Christmas with mom!  As long as my fever was down I felt fine to go.  I can't miss Christmas.  My brother felt bad too, and even Turner missed Christmas because he was sick and his asthma had gotten really bad that day.

But through it all we ended up having a really good time.  Christmas with Granny is almost as good as Santa (if not better).  We all look forward to it and count down every year!

Eden!!  It's Christmas!





Eden got her first ride!  Frozen car!

And here is to a good nights rest! Peace and Calming
