I hope all of you out there in Blogland had a good day!
Our kids actually slept in until 9:30, and didn't touch the Santa presents until we were up.
(Then all hell broke loose! :) Paper was flying everywhere!)
I played good mom and made a very (un)healthy, but fantastic brunch. Croissants cut in half and toasted in a pan, scrambled eggs with heavy cream, and smoked salmon. It held them all over until I FINALLY got the holiday dinner on the table at 2:45!
The goose was great, steaks from the grill were fantastic. Too many sides to list. And homemade cheesecake for dessert. (Why didn't someone remind me how much of a pain in the ass these were to make?? I was up til 3 a.m. Baking the 2 cheesecakes!)
The only thing missing were Mom and Dad, but we talked on the phone a few times throughout the day.
Everyone is still tuffed from grazing all day.
The kids are overdosing on video games and magic tricks.
For the first time in a long time, the kids got what they wanted. And in their words, "It was the best Christmas ever! Not only did we get what we wanted, we got even more!"
Yay for online shopping and easy price comparison! Yay for discount cards to video game stores!
If it weren't for those two things, the kids wouldn't have gotten half of what they did.
AND we did it under budget!!
Now I'm going to sit down, and try not to fall asleep!
Have a good night all!
