Christmas was GREAT for us this year. We all got spoiled rotten and had such a great time the entire day. First great thing that happened was Kamdyn slept until 6:30am! That was SO nice! I got up to feed him and my sister was already awake so I just stayed up instead of trying to get a little more sleep cause I was too excited to see my kids reactions. Kim has stayed with us every Christmas Eve since Jaydan was born and we love having her apart of our Christmas! The second great thing of the day was before the kids woke up Kim was holding Kamdyn and he was so full of smiles. He had done a few quich half smiles here and there but these were his first full big grins! It was so precious!! Maddie was the first to wake up so we went to try to wake Jaydan up and at first he kept saying no but after a minute of realizing Santa had left presents he jumped right up and was ready to go. They both were SO excited when they turned the corner in the living room and saw all their new presents!! After opening and see all their new stuff they played, played and played some more. I started making our breakfast of eggs, smoked sausage and heated up the cinnamin rolls my sisters roommate made. It was so yummy! Around 10am Kamrins family showed up to see what the kids got. While the kids were distracted showing everyone Kamrins brother and brother in law went out to set up a BIG surprise for the kids. All the sudden we hear music coming from outside and Kamrins dad tells the kids something must be out there so they rushed to get their coats on and check it out. We open the door and there sat a Cadillac Escalade power wheels!! You should have seen my kids face!! It was priceless!! This thing is so awesome! It even has a working radio and some powerful speakers! We told they kids Santa must have forgot about it and just dropped it off outside since we were already awake. After riding it for a while and both had bright red noses we were able to pry them away from it. We got ready and headed to Kamrins grandmas house for lunch and to do our brother-sister gift exchange. His brother Landis had my name and made a very special gift for me. 2 days before him and his mom came and picked up my oldest 2 and told me they were taking them to their house to make gingerbread houses which they did but they also filmed a little interview of them asking questions about me and what I do for them. It was the sweetest thing ever! At the end they both told me Merry Christmas and they loved me and blew me a kiss at the same time. I always tear up when I get gifts that invlove my kids. I really needed that sweet video at that time too. It meant so much to me so thanks Landis! Another very meaningful gift I recieved was from his sister Pashell which was an awesome frame with pictures of my kids at her wedding. His sister Shaless gave us memberships to Discovery Gateway which I am VERY excited to take my kids and make fun memories there! After Grans house we went to my brother Brandons house to do our brother-sister and niece-nephew gift exchange. My sister Kim had my name and handed me a piece of paper that said I get a free hour massage from her best friend and babysitting while I go!! I have been needing a massage for the longest time and Im so excited to use it!! Oh Santa was very good to me this year. He gave me a really nice computered sewing machine and certificates to a lasor hair removal place to get 2 different places done! I cant tell you how stoked I am to do my eyebrows and never have to pluke or wax again!!!! He also filled my stocking super full. After my brother house we stopped off at my grandmas house to see her and give her, her present. By then the kids were EXHAUSTED and ready to go home. We did clean up some and play more but then it was off to bed we went. It was a fabulous Christmas for us. The fun wasnt over either. The next morning we went to Kamrins parents house and opened our gifts from them. I was so excited to get a brand new hot pink camera! Mine was giving out and I was very upset about it but now I have a new one that is way better then my last! Thank you to everyone who made our Christmas so great and all the spoiling you did do us! We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!!
