Also-- two days left for the Review Extravaganza 2012!
So Christmas- it was wonderful and I am sad it is over.
Part of our tradition is to make our kids wait upstairs until everyone is up, then Eric and I go down first, get the Christmas lights on and cameras ready and then the fun can begin.
And here is a movie trailer (just over a minute long) I made to show the fun.
Lucas was spoiled with many Legos and science type kits.
|He built this set on his own in one day|
Alex got everything from clothes for her American Doll, Legos and a giant Merida.
Ryder got lots of cute Melissa and Doug things.
|Cute little TP with animals from Mimi and Poppi|
|The purse Lucas picked out and got for me|
Some of the highlights were when Alex would "faint" when she got a present she really loved (you can see it in the video); when Ryder would unwrap to see a box and say "yea a box" and truly meant it, and the fact that I tricked Eric by wrapping his present in a very big box (and it was a good trick as I forgot I had done that too-- also can see in video)
|That is a tube full of yard-long licorice!|
Hope to see your Ten Things to Smile About Lists tomorrow!!
