The preparation the day or two before Christmas is exhausting. My biggest task was making sure all food items were purchased and prepared ahead of time. Presents were organized in 3 piles to prevent cross family disasters. Lists were put on the fridge by family and date and we somehow managed to stay very organized this year. Hallelujah!
I will post 4 different Christmas post. For each family festivities were different and wonderful in their own way. I will also post about my new family tradition that we did at my parents house.
FIRST STOP.....HILL CHRISTMAS!
As soon as we arrived we had lunch and then my Dad showed us his Christmas home videos that my Grandma gave to him a couple of months ago. They were silent but they were absolutely hilarious to watch. I am so happy we have them to watch.
We got spoiled. And I look the same in every photo. We got a large chunk of change from my parents so we could get stuff for the house. I didn't expect any other gifts but of course they couldn't let us not have anything to open. We got a dust buster (yay!), movies, wok & utensils (Anth really loves Asian food), tools, pajama pants, and Anth got a gun bag. Kristi gave me that adorable sweater (I wore it the next two days lol). And Varinia got me the scarf (I also wore it the next two days).
These are the goggles that Jaden got with his fort. They are awesome and everyone wanted a turn.
Jaden got a spy cam. It was a big hit as well.
She looked at it. She was HORRIFIED. Then she took a moment to herself. She stroked it. SUCCESS! "Doggie Doggie Doggie!" It was the funniest thing I have ever seen. Alexa is a riot!
P.s Kristi came down with a nasty cold and didn't want pictures taken of her. Sad. This is the reason why she is not shown. Love ya sis. Hope you are feeling better.
Thank you for reading part 1 of 4 Christmas Events. The following 3 will be posted within the next day or two.
