christmas, christmas time is here

Christmas, Christmas time is near
Time for toys and time for cheer
We've been good, but we can't last
Hurry Christmas, hurry fast

It's really hard to believe that after all of the planning, shopping and organizing, Christmas is nearly over. We had a great Christmas this year. Well, technically, three great Christmas celebrations. 
Our first was with the Lakes on the 23rd. Lots of boys-12 grandsons and two great grand-daughters (one didn't make the trip this year) all in one house. Wow. Lots of remote control cars and action figures. :) A fun game of "Would You Rather" with Retta and I & our oldest boys.I was pleasantly surprised by how well Bryce knew me.I guess 12 year old boys do listen to their moms sometimes.

Our next Christmas celebration was with the Sawyer clan-MORE boys. Six boys-no girls, all under the age of 12. Quite loud and quite into Batman and Ninja Turtles. I was super excited to see Bobbi's Nutella brownies make an appearance. I pretty much wait all year for them.

Finally, Christmas morning arrived. Moose is our only boy who still believes in Santa. It was pretty funny to see him open a present and hear him say "Oh no. I got mail for Christmas!" We had wrapped one of his toys (a large stuffed Monsters Inc animal) in a Priority Mail box-ha ha. Pretty funny that he knows the USPS logo. We spent a relaxing day playing with all of our toys (video games & Nerf guns for the big guys, and TMNT and Hot Wheels for the younger guys) and went to evening service at church.

{no Christmas morning pictures-I know better than to post a photo of 12 year old boys in their pj's and without their hair done-that's a big no-no.}
