Our Christmas Day was a bit of a blur to me. I remember Shannon saying ” come on, let’s wake the kids up” and I really thought ” I don’t know if I can do this”. I felt awful. Nonetheless I got up and pushed through. The kids had their new Mario and Toy story jammies on and were ready to open gifts! I did laugh heartily when Shannon said ” Boys, these gifts are very funny”! INDEED- they were wrapped in funny pages I had been saving for months.
On Christmas Eve- Shannon suggetsed we go to Jekyll Island Club for breakfast. I was thrilled to not cook and it seemed fun to get all dressed up. So we had quite a civilized Christmas Morning breakfast. The boys really did great and loved the food. We wiped noses about 500 times but besides that it was great.
Kenimer was amazed that there were five juice choices. He tried them all!
We went to my parents house to exchange gifts and eat lunch. There were many guests and we had a lovely time. I went into one of the bedrooms multiple times to lay down for a bit because I was feeling lousy. But the times were sweet. The thing I definitely remember is that we came home with Buzz and Woody. They have officially entered our family. They have beds in the dump trucks, their teeth have been brushed, they have almost gotten a bath ( I rescued them!). They have brought lots of joy- though we are always looking for Woody’s hat! Thanks mom and dad for the gift of the year!
What a blessing Christmas day always is!
