Christmas Eve

Isaak woke up from his nap cherry. It's as if he didn't get sick at 1 AM. Daddy and Isaak were able to meet up at Aunt Terra's with us. Then I found out Grandpa Spiehs was sick. :( He had to miss all of Christmas Eve. I don't remember a night without him in the picture for a long time.

Hopefully no one else gets sick!

We had 3 or 4 different soups to choose from, shrimp, crackers, cheese and veggies.

Aunt Terra's Christmas Tree loaded with presents.
Unwrapping presents wasn't a complete mad house. The boys are all now old enough to take care of their wrapping paper and were nice about saying, "Thank you!"

Waiting to dig into their stockings!

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!

Sounds like you had a busy, busy night.

Our Grandson wanted to go home with his new leap frog computer, that was until he opened his baseball uniform then that was what he wanted. Kids are so fun! Sometimes anyway.

Merry Christmas to you and your family! A sickness has been going around because I stayed in bed all day trying to recover myself.

So glad Isaak perked up. Sounds like it was a great night after all. I'm so glad. And so cute that Santa left a mess behind.
