After we got home Christmas Eve, from my grandparents house, the kids were playing with the gifts that they had received, and I started getting ready to make our Santa cookies.
Caiden and Jerry were playing PlayStation football on-line, and they were having a ball. But my Bailee Grace helped me in the kitchen, and she was taking little videos with her video camera that she just got.
Jerry and I got into bed about 2:30, and the next thing we knew, the kids were running around the house at 5:45 am!! I was like.."I'M UP, LETS GO OPEN THEM GIFTS!!"
looking at thier stockings
Caiden got LOTS of Bakugans! From games and cards to trade, to tiny tiny ones, I didn't know they could be the size of a quarter!
Caiden got a couple of board games
Sorry, this is the morning of Christmas, I know you do not want to see my face, but hey, who puts make up on a 5 am!! Not me, this is real life poeople!!! Deal with it!! LOL
Caiden loves trading sports cards. Jerry often takes him to Jamie's Field of Dreams to buy cards.
This certain pack came with 100 cards, and he got a real nice football binder to keep them in. Now Caiden and Bo can trade cards. They enjoy comparing cards with each other!
Jerry and Caiden was assembling the Guitar Hero.
Jerry and I had so much fun playing it together!
Bailee decided to bring out the Guitar.
Bubba and Baxter I think had enough of the Christmas thing, so they decided to take a nap!
After hours of playing with all the gifts, I started to prepare our dinner. We skipped lunch since we had such a big breakfast. We had Fried turkey, dressing, broccoli rice casserole, homemade turnip greens, which I cooked the day before, cornbread, fried okra(Jerry's fav) butter beans, and macaroni n cheese.
It was so yummy! I love cooking for the holidays. Yes, it it alot to cook and clean up, but I don't mind!
After our wonderful dinner, Jerry decided to hook up or printer. I was so excited! Not just for me, but for the kids! They have to do so many projects for school and now we could get this projects done in a flash now!
Jerry and I usaully don't get each other gifts for Christmas. We get things for each other thourgh out the year. We feel that the kids are only young once, and we want the focus on them. So, the day after Christmas, Jerry decided to take the kids to town to let them spend thier money they got for Chrsitmas. I had some time to pick up alittle and clean the kicthen. They were gone for quite a while, and I got worried and called to check on them. Jerry told me that they were having a hard time finding one of the games that Caiden wanted. Jerry said that they would be home soon. They finally got home and I asked them what they got. They suprised me with a monitor for our computer!! I was so shocked and happy! Happy that they actually took a gift of thiers and turned around and gave a gift in return! Caiden, Bailee and Jerry pitched in and bought me a gift!! Thanks ya'll for being such thoughtful poeple and for blessing my heart, not with a gift, but with the giving from your heart! I love you all soo much!
