Merry Christmas

Things are finally settling down here- the Christmas cards went into the mail this morning, all of the cooking is done that I can do today, the dishes are cleaned up, and 4 of the 5 kids are in bed. As soon as the little one conks out we will head to bed too, since I am sure they will be up at the crack of dawn in the morning anxious to see what Santa left for them. We, of course, have been tracking Santa's progress on the NORAD website since this afternoon. Santa is getting close now ;)

We spent most of the day at home. I cooked a few things, dinner for tonight in the crockpot, and Christmas Bread and Breakfast casserole are ready for the morning. I made Christmas salad, chocolate pecan pie and pumpkin pie over the weekend. We cleaned up a bit too this afternoon- my mom had to comment on how she could see the top of the kitchen counter when she came over for dinner after the Christmas Eve church service :-P We watched the movie, "Deck The Halls" after dinner- pretty good movie.

All of the kids loved their new PJs this evening. Sarah didn't hesitate a bit when I gave her the wrapped box and told her she could open it. She ripped right into the paper and needed just a little bit of help getting the top of the box off. Maybe it helped that Brenna had opened hers first, so she knew that it was OK. I did catch her eyeing the rest of the presents under the tree when we came back downstairs after changing her into her new Dora PJs LOL.

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
