Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Once upon a time there was a mom who woke her kids up in the morning, fed them breakfast, did a little house work, fed the kids lunch, did some laundry, fed the kids dinner then put them to bed. The next morning she woke up and did it all over again. The End. This is the story of my life these days. It is pretty boring and it is also the reason I haven’t written in a while. I’m not complaining though, things are going well and we are all happy and healthy so I’ll take it.

We have a rule that the kids can not wake Chris or I up before 5am on Christmas morning. Kaylee is really good about following this rule, but you better believe as soon as she sees the clock hit five; every one in our home is awake. She has an alarm clock in her room and she hadn’t changed it since the time change, so it was an hour ahead. She asked Chris or I if we would change it to the right time for her and we told her we were sure she would remember to take an hour away from the time on her clock. In the middle of the night Chris went and changed her clock to right time, so when it was actually 5 am Kaylee thought it was 4 am and so we should have gotten an extra hour of sleep. Notice I said could have, Chris must have gotten to excited, because he woke everyone up at 5:30. This from the guy who was trying to pay the kids to sleep until nine.

We had a good Christmas, after present opening at our house, we went for round two at my mom’s house. I really enjoy that my whole family lives so close that we can all get together so often. My grandma was even able to come down for a visit so it was really nice. For dinner I didn’t really feel like cooking so we went to Sunset Station for the buffet with Chris’s sisters. That really wasn’t the best idea because we ended up having to wait for an hour and a half just to get in, and the prices were kind of high for our kids (Kaylee) who ate sunflower seeds and cornbread. It was fun anyway, and I know we would have spent the same amount of time and money if we had cooked for everyone at home. The only down side is that we didn’t have any left-overs.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Holliday season and we wish you all a Happy New Year.
