Merry Chris-a-mas!

That's how Austin says it. I love the lingo of 3 year olds. So funny! 

Well, we had a really nice Chris-a-mas. We all went to the Gordon's for their annual Christmas Eve party. Stayed there until Anna was almost a mess. Then we headed home in anticipation of putting all the kids to bed. We got three of them to bed, but the one we thought would for sure go to sleep, did not go to sleep. In fact, Miss Anna was VERY excited to be in her quiet home. She perked right up and was all over the place with lots of smiles and wanting to play. Stinker! All of my kids did this at this age. They like their quiet and familiar home. 

Christmas morning brought the opening of presents (after getting coffee going, of course). Austin busied himself playing with his new race track, Ethan got to business on his new DS game, Anna played with her new toy that lights up and makes all sorts of noise, and Emma worked on her magnetics set with her daddy. Later that afternoon the Martinez families came for dinner. We chatted and played Taboo, ate turkey dinner and cinnamon rolls for dessert, and finished the night off with Rock Band. :) The kids got to bed late again, but they had a great day. 

Today we are relaxing at home, I am sitting here quite tired out and looking at the mess around me. Pav and his wife, Sarah, are coming in tomorrow and I have all sorts of things that I need to do, but they are going to have to wait just a bit. I need to relax! Hosting Christmas is a lot of work! I did get a little snooze today, but what I really need to do is get to bed early tonight. 

I hope you all had a merry Christ-a-mas!
