I gotta say, I love Christmas on a Sunday, especially with 8:30 church. We got up (some earlier than others, ahem), did stockings, ate breakfast, then got ready for church. Sacrament meeting was 50 minutes then we were back home and into pajamas and ready to open presents. It really stretched out the day, especially compared to last year when we were done opening presents by 8:00 a.m. (no lie).

We lazed around the house playing with presents. Some of us napped because some of us were up until 1 a.m. And then Chuck's brother and family joined us for an easy Feliz Navidad. I love easy Christmas dinner.

Gift highlights for Rhett: German nutcracker, camera, Guinness Book of World Records (he seriously loves this book), new Harry Potter book.

Gift highlights for Ollie: stuffed Piggie and Gerald, spooner board, magformers, pinpoint impression thing (he seriously loves this toy--I think it was the last thing I added at Target).

Gift highlights for the adults: trampoline for the boys. Seriously. They spent so much time out there. I know I'm going to love it. Unfortunately it has yet to result in sleeping in, no matter how worn out they get on it. But still. I even showed them a few things! That is, before I started peeing my pants from all the jumping.

Oh. They kept telling me how cold their faces were. So I made them some balaclavas.


  1. Don't give up the tramp yet - keep jumping and you'll pee less. Yes, I say this from experience.

    Haha, my kids love those pinpoint things. I've never gotten them one, but they sure love them at the store. :)

    And, yes!, not only did I love Christmas on Sunday, I loved Christmas Eve on Saturday. Let's do something to get this permanently set. :)

    Sounds and looks like a great Christmas!

  2. Ah the age where gifts for us are really for our children.
