Hopefully no one else gets sick!
We had 3 or 4 different soups to choose from, shrimp, crackers, cheese and veggies.

Mica's eyes lit up with a Kre-O Transformer and Cars 2 Lego set.
Isaak's eyes lit up with most everything. He was the slowest to unwrap his gifts. He couldn't understand why he couldn't take things out to play. We do our best to stash stuff away, so it doesn't get mixed up with the paper or other kid's toys. Plus if each toy were to be played with we'd be there until midnight. Isaak seemed most interested in the penguin gift tag that Grandma Spiehs used for the 2nd year in a row. We had a good laugh at that.
I enjoyed all the cousins, except Emerson getting a face plate from us. I try and find different things to get them. Something they can use, have fun with, but isn't always a toy. Emerson got a squeak Teddy Bear and Tree onesie.
I think I liked the red hand mixer gadget the best!
One highlight of the night was when Mica lost his second tooth. I mentioned to him during church that it would be funny if both Santa and the Tooth Fairy had to pay a visit to our house. He was busy wiggling his tooth to try and make that happen.
We had a busy night.
Santa ate some cookies, drank some milk and left the fireplace open AGAIN. This time there is soot on our floor. He's always messy!
Tomorrow we have our own little family Christmas. Then we get to celebrate with extended family on my side.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
