We survived! I think anyone who has children knows what I am talking about. It was mass chaos around here Christmas morning. Aunt Betsy came over around 6:30am and the Diva was downstairs shortly after that. The boys walked into the living room and stood in the middle of the floor for a minute and then ran towards their Santa gifts. The Diva had already torn through her stocking and was itching to open the gifts under the tree. It was killing her to wait for her brother's. We brought all the gifts into the living room. Diva immediately started tearing paper. She was so cute. She would tear part of the paper off of each gift and get really excited about it and move on to the next one without fully unwrapping anything. I helped the boys unwrap their gifts. Of course they were more enamored with the paper and boxes rather than what was in the boxes. It was a very exciting. After the excitement wore off and all the gifts were open we were left with a sea of paper and boxes in the living room.
Mike and I have a Christmas tradition. We start the morning off with Mimosa's. We then proceed to drink Mimosa's most of the day. We stuck to tradition this year :-)
We made Turkey and all the sides for lunch and ate ourselves into a stupor.
It was a good day.
