Despite my earlier post about a blue Christmas Titus and I did get it together and we had a fun morning. Last year we started a tradition of getting our kids new (well new to us) jammies that they can open on Christmas Eve. I started looking for jammies at second hand stores back in October. We got some very cute ones this year!
Christmas Eve, James, Gideon and Faith in their new jammies:
Gideon and I got up earlier then everyone else so we watched the end of A Very Monkey Christmas (Curious George) while we waited for everyone else to wake up. First we opened stockings:
Both boys got 3 little airplanes in their stockings. I bought them very cheap at a second hand store way back in Oct. They have had a lot of fun with them.
And then I made breakfast, which no one ate but me. Titus wasn’t feeling well (upset stomach among other things) so he didn’t eat and
the kids ate the stuff from their stockings. I made so many cinnamon rolls I ate them for days!
Daddy and his pull up bar:
Our boys and their new cowboy boots! They have worn them every day since!
Mommy and her new yellow cast iron pot! (super super super happy!!!)
New blue tractors from Grandparents Penner:
And the best present for the boys, Hungry Hungry Hippos! At the last minute on Christmas Eve I bought it for them at the second hand store for $2. My poor boys, it only came with one marble!!!!
But that didn’t stop them from having fun and they played with it all day!
I am very very proud of Titus for really getting in and having fun with the kids, even though he felt sick. Way to go Babe! It was a very Merry Christmas!
