And all through the house, the children were crazy, they scared the mouse. They woke in the morning with excitement and cheer, knowing that Christmas would soon be here.
First on there list was to open a gift from there Grandma Ginny, each year with more kids she has to send so many. Smiley got a car Tow Mater, he drove it all day and later.
Gregory got a wii game so much fun, Monster Hunter he has them on the run.
Evan opened legos this one not from Grandma Ginny, hundreds of pieces I will be vacumeing up so many.
Now Princess Faith opened a singing panda bear, she was dancing to the music and brother wanted to share.
5 minutes later when the gift opening was done we headed to the kitchen for some more fun. It was time to bake, and then to the neighbors home the cookies we wold take.
Dozen upon dozen we made, working for hours in the kitchen never being paid.
We made chocolate chip, chocolate chocolate chip and best of all sugar cookies with lots of icing. We ate as we made them they were to enticing. For Santa and his reindeer there were so many, we hooked him up to erase the bad times because with 3 boys there can be plenty.
While we were cooking under the table hid an elf, red and cute it could be none else, than our sweetest girl so kissable and cute, but there for handouts for that delicious sugary food.
The baking was done, the cookies were made, as the day went on all the children played. The loved their new toys, and together they wondered about Santa and when would he come, would he come down the chimney? Or through the door? They though about the presents he would bring them because they wanted more.
But have the boys been good or were they bad? We were glued to the computer watching Santa on NORAD. He flew to Russia, he flew to Fiji, he flew over oceans, continents, islands and more. We watched and waited for soon he would be at our chimney or door.
Waiting the children never grew tired, we cuddled up and watched movies but nothing worked. The were as excited as ever and the hour was late, they needed to go to bed and it had been all momma could take. I sent them to bed but they did not stay. I told them you better go to sleep or Santa won't stop with his sleigh.
Finally asleep I begun my work wrapping presents should have been left to the elfs. Because I was up past 1 AM and tired myself. But eventually it got done and the stocking filled and hung.
It was a glorious night the room was glowing, and the was a sea of presents blessings overflowing.
So many packages! So many gracious family and friends. We are truly blessed and I was thankful the evening was at its end. For now I could go to sleep and rest my head I quickly fell asleep cuddling my princess in bed.
As we slept the boys swore they heard him he thumped on the roof and never was in sight but then flew off exclaiming "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!"\
