We split our Christmas celebration into three different celebrations. We started off with my mom the Tuesday before Christmas. We went over and had lunch and opened presents with her. Her and my dad spoiled the heck out of me this year. It was really nice to get spoiled a little. They also spoiled Booger and Pretty Girl. We spent the afternoon at her house playing with their new toys. I only have one picture from that day, but I have to say, it's my favorite.
Christmas eve was spent at M's parents house with his side of the family. It was a nice evening. The kids were spoiled again and were able to play with some of their new gifts. We also ate some great food.
Then Santa came to our house. There was much excitement in our house. Both kids understood what was going on. It was magical this year and their excitement was contagious. Santa spoiled our kids as well. They received baby turtles, 2 of them; a large fish tank for the turtles and fish; ninja turtle gear; Sophia the First doll and princess shoes; the transformer Grimlock Booger has been talking about for months; and a few other little things. They had a blast Christmas morning.
Overall it was a nice holiday. The magic was alive for the kids and to me, that is what is important. That and family. It's not about the gifts, but watching the kids believe so strongly in something is nice. It was a nice Christmas.
