Christmas with my Family
"Christmas Morning" we had with my family. We spent the night so that we were there for all of the excitement and the bad sleep! Kid's sleep and Christmas just don't jive! Once everyone was up we opened stockings and got our annual allotment of toothbrushes and goodies and then headed to the Christmas Tree for the main event. This year we got a Roku from my parents for a big family gift. It is so much fun we can get our Amazon Prime subscription through it and have the Mormon Channel and BYUtv for free as well. I got a new food processor and it is big. On my Christmas list I emphasized that I wanted a BIG one, but I didn't realize how BIG they came, try 14 cups! I just made cookie dough in it though so I didn't have to pull out my mixer, hopefully they turn out otherwise the academic team might not like me too much. Phil got a subscription to Audible.com for the year so he can listen to 1 book a month. Pete got the fisher-price talking zoo and loves it. He figured out how to make the animals talk and how the swing works on it, now just to make the slide work! I gave the girls Hello Kitty Hats (the pattern is two posts down the line) and Ben got some coloring/painting books. I made Mom a knit nativity set and Dad got a travel mug that looks like a camera lens.
Thanks for a great time everyone!
