Ho Ho Ho! Santa Came to our House!

Christmas Morning came at 7 am. Jason and Sharon stayed the night Christmas Eve. We enjoyed great food and a game of Phase 10 and Brady won - woo hoo! I love being with my family on Christmas Eve. Our tradition is rolls, meat and cheese trays. relish trays, crackers and cheese balls, Christmas goody trays... yum! sooo much food, atmosphere - but most of all family.

One present was opened on Christmas Eve - New pajama's of course. A tradition.

Our Christmas tree on Christmas morning - loaded with presents and stuffed stockings.

Sharon and Jason opening Christmas presents. This year they gave me a long list of what they wanted. I love lists better then trying to come up with something they need or want. I could have spent a bunch of money trying to purchase all their wants - but I made a dent before the budget ran out. I didn't want to go into this Christmas with any debt and I succeeded - cash for everything!

Brady kept in his laying down position - wrapped in a blanket. I just kept handing him presents. This was a lot better then last year. He was happy and cheerful this year. .. last year he was a grumpy teenager who we made get up to early *giggle. I'm glad he wasn't that way this year.

Jason got 3 t-shirts this year. This particular one I didn't want to get him - I didn't like it and told him no.... It was a surprise for him that he got it. I'm just tooooooooo nice!

Jason and Sharon wanted the Beatles Rock Band for their X-box. It was second on their list.

The first item on their list was a computer chair. I found a pretty good deal on a chair that mass-ss-ssages.                  

I think they were happy to get a good chair for their computer. Jason also got an x-box game Halo Wars.

Sharon's items on her list that I was able to get them was:  a hand mixer, baking dishes - muffin pan, cake pan and cookie sheets, a set of matching silverware, mixing bowls. She also wanted a BSU Bronco white hoodie.

Brady's list was the Nickelodeon cartoon Avatar DVD's (there are 3 sets/seasons), an electric razor, Cooking Mama DS game, Gardening Mama DS game, Rockband additional songs game, A Sims game, a sit-up bar that holds your feet and tucks under a door. His Dad got him new shoes and an iTunes gift card.

He was very happy with all of his presents - it was a great Christmas (quoting Brady - you did a good job Mom).

This Christmas I have been blissfully happy. It was a wonderful day!

Oh I didn't put down what I got. My Mom sent me a beautiful picture for my wall. When I get it hung I'll post a picture. My list for Jason and Sharon was new fry pans and a cookie scoop. Brady came up with a great plan all on his own. At the ward Christmas party my friend Trina told me a of a new book set she was reading (vampires) called "The Mortal Instruments" it's a 3 book set, the books are "City of Bones", "City of Ashes" and "City of Glass". Stephanie Meyers review was: "The Mortal Instruments series is a story world that I love to live in. Beautiful!". Trina was loving them.... Brady is very clever to get them for me. I'm excited to dive in and read them.

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year. We have been very blessed! Merry Christmas!

So fun to have the family all together. I just came back from my daughter's house. They got Beatles Rock Band and we rocked the house with it! That's one band I know the words to and it's so much fun! Especially with all the little grandkids wanting a turn! Those are good words to hear, "Mom, you did a good job!"
Good job!

Looks like a great Christmas! I loved spying my card on the door! Made me tear up for some reason...maybe I'm hormonal or something...lol. I am glad you liked it. You'll have to let me know if those books are good!
