Today went by way too fast. We got to my sister's just before 1 and watched the kids open their presents. I ran out of boxes for the boys, so i put one of Ashton's Tshirts in a Wheat Thins box. When he opened it, he had this confused look on his face like, uh, whatever. he kinda just tossed it aside to get the next gift. it was funny. When we told him to open the box he was like OOOO SWEEEET! (Spiderman tshirt). The kids are so cute opening their gifts. So many "COOOOOOL!!"s before they even realized what it was (like pillow cases and sheets -oooooo.)
Then it was the adults turn to open presents. Barry this morning was like "What's open today?" ("CVS I think") "What can I get my wife at CVS for Christmas?" ("Jerk.") All week he's been playing it up that he had no idea what to get me and was strongly implying that i didn't get anything under the tree today. Well after everyone had opened their presents out comes a gift from my husband! YAY! He went out with Nichole and she helped him pick out a leather jacket that I've been talking about for a while. YAY!!!! He was so proud of himself for deceiving me all this time.
The rest of the day was just eating and relaxing with family. we played a game of balderdash and went on a drive and looked at Christmas lights. The boys the whole time were just rowdy with sugar and new toys. At one point we see all three of them sneaking through the dark hallway with their new headlamps. As they turn the bend and go through some adults, Ashton, quite loudly, states: "SHHH! We're SNEAKING!" Oh, OK. got it. :)
Before we know it it's after 8:00. I have to work in the morning and we have a decent drive home, so we say goodbye and headout.
Christmas is just so much better with kids and loved ones. I am so grateful to have such wonderful people that i call family.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
