Lots of presents to open. Nothing to do but laze around. Quality family time. An excuse to eat an excessive amount of yummy carbs. The kids busy all day with their new toys. What is not to like about this holiday!
Wilt Christmas 2010
|The tradition of opening new Christmas jammies on Christmas Eve!|
|So excited about his monkey jams.|

|They will thank me for making them do these pictures when they are older. Maybe.|

Okay, you mountain friends are not allowed to make fun of my store bought logs. I still have a bit of city girl left in me, I guess in someways I always will. I know I live in the forest and there is a plethora of firewood within arms reach out my front door, but this is just easier. I guess I was just really desperate to have a fire and I compulsively bought them last time we were at Costco. We do add real wood to it to keep it going. Fine, I won't buy anymore fake logs, this will be my last box!
I am so in love with what a roaring fireplace does to a room, so perfect!

A video of our Christmas morning. If you are not family, this might bore you.
I have one massive complaint!
WHAT THE HECK IS UP WITH THE NO SNOW, WE LIVE IN THE FLIPPIN ROCKY MOUNTAINS FOR GOODNESS SAKE!
This was our Christmas day, no snow and the kids spent most of the day outside on their new bikes and rollerblades. Now, I know it was great for the kids to be able to use their new toys, but really no snow for Christmas? Sad!
|New jacket, new Rapunzel hair, going for a ride!|
Pillow Pets, you have to be kidding me? I am not one for fads, so when my children's #1 wish this year was a pillow pet, I wrinkled my nose. Hyped-up glamorized pillows shaped like animals? okay their cute, but still!
Now, what I'm really thinking is, "I wish I had thought of it."
proud owners of four new Pillow Pets! Please just amuse me and tell me $80.00 is a great price for four really cute stuffed animals. I am trying to convince myself and not cry. Yes, I said $80.00. $20.00 each! Now are you with me on the ridiculousness of these little furry rip-offs?
|Ella and her Repunzel hair. This is what she picked out with her Target gift card.|
Thank you Uncle Bob and Aunt D!
Erik and I went shopping for the stocking stuffers together one night. Look at what dad picked out. In the first video you saw poor Matty trying a centipede flavored one.
This is not child abuse, I repeat this is not child abuse, they chose to eat them, willingly!!!!
The day long game of guessing the Jelly beans! Two jelly beans look alike, one is gross and one is not. Who will get the nasty jelly bean and cry? Doesn't that sound like tons of fun?
Now, please give me a break (I ask for those a lot in my blog don't I?) I am in this video, but beware no make-up has been applied. It could get a little scary, I have warned you! Just keepin' it real!
