This Christmas has been soo hard. I guess being sick is most of it. I couldn't shake it and it dragged me down. Christmas eve came and we were no where near ready and so getting Roark into bed became a real pain. He was just soo excited he could not go to sleep. I even tried laying down with him. Yay he is asleep.. so I got up and went and laid down in my bed...NOPE "MOM where did you go.. ugh!! Finally I told him to just go to sleep or Santa would not come and we would not have any presents. I don't know what time he went to sleep but Barry and I got up at 3:15 to finish and went back to bed. The kids let us sleep until 7:30 wow later than I let my parents sleep..lol
The kids were so excited. Even Bri who told us she knows we are Santa.. lol We even surprised her. The had soo much fun opening gifts. My Mom, Darlene, made each of us a fleece blanket and boy are they nice and warm. I got Curious George, Barry got Steelers of course, Bri got Pink Horses and Mr. Roark got John Deere. They are down in the living room and we use them every night. I am going to include a few pics of some of our gifts and they fun we had. Barry even fired up the BBQ for some steak we had in the freezer and we had a good breakfast.
All in all it was a wonderful day. We went to our friends Donnie and Sarah's house for dinner and had a wonderful meal and alot of friendship. Hope your Day was just as great.
