Christmas Eve

We are attempting assembly of all the toys that Santa is getting the credit for. And by "we" I mean my husband, obviously,  is trying to get into the damn boxes and I'm sitting here laughing and blogging. We're a hell of a team.

We are about to break out the chainsaw to get into these boxes. I'm pretty sure it's easier to sneak into this country than to get a toy out of it's packaging.

Enough bitching. It's Christmas Eve. We've just finished an enormous artery clogging dinner, spent time with family, and opened some presents. Now it's quiet, the kids are in bed, and I'm drinking making it look like Santa has come. Do you think it would be a bad idea to tell Aidan that Santa wants margaritas instead of milk? Either way, I hope my kids believe in Santa several more years. This is fun!

what did you get them this year? Jeff spent three hours putting together a foosball table for Tyler. What a pain! He loved it though. Tyler left a note to "santa" that said "hi mom and dad." So disappointing when they don't believe anymore....enjoy it while you can!

I talked Aiden in to leaving Santa homemade egg nog. Santa spiked it after he was fast asleep. It was good.

we were up until 2am wrapping gifts that evolved into a mess for me to clean up within 15 minutes the next morning. (not to mention that hours johnny spent putting together the fabulous red kitchen that cc just shrugged at the next morning). My kids don't believe in santa anymore, not even the toddler. but it's still fun for us - for some strange reason. ;)

Being Santa is so much fun! Hope Santa did a good job this year! My son got up at 6:00 am and played for 12 hours straight with everything Santa brought ... he was so tired he fell asleep in 30 seconds. We literally had to force him to eat! It is such a kick to see their faces on Christmas morning!

Merry Christmas!

It was a good Christmas Eve at your house. No mama running around stressed out.

Oh, I do like the margaritas idea...hm, I think Monkey is young enough that I might be able to start her off thinking that!
