We started Christmas morning off at Bobby and Cathy's house to see what Santa brought BC. He must have been a very good boy this year because Santa brought him a laptop and a wireless setup to go with it.
By 8:30 a.m. I was flat on the floor in their office, my head stuck under the desk, to see what we needed to do to get the wireless going. What can I say? I'm a bit of a geek. I get excited by new technology toys.
By the way, please take note of BC's new jammies. Had you heard his mom and grandma the night before, you would have thought he was 5 instead of approaching 19.
BC was so good this year that Santa also got him a wii. Christmas afternoon was spent with guitar hero...
But, illustrating one of the many ways he's so good that Santa was so nice... he shared.
There were other games too... bowling and golf and more...
Look at that form!
Somewhere along the way we opened presents...
Can you guess what it is?
Everyone likes stockings!
Today Mattie's family had their Christmas so I went out to see everyone. It's always fun to see kids enjoy Christmas.
I wanted to play with Alex's dinosaur, but it seemed rude to ask a child to share his toy.
Hannah was making a haul, too.
Johnny and Leah had three envelopes for their nieces. He said one had a lot of money, one a medium amount, and one a small amount. He didn't know which was which and let them choose. They all seemed happy at the end.
I discovered Leah is one of my own kind when it comes to wrapping presents. As she put it, "I like to make them pretty." She was modeling the ribbon from my packages.
Generally I don't exchange gifts with all of them, because we're not usually together, but I had picked up some little ornaments for each of them as a remembrance. I had expected to leave them with Mattie because I didn't expect to see everyone, but it was very nice to share that fun with them.
It was a nice day, although I wasn't my usual perky self quite yet. I am, however, feeling better. Tomorrow I'm eating real food again! It's a big day!
