Wrapping up Christmas

Ha! No pun intended in the title there. 

Well, okay, so... so maybe, a little pun was intended. A really... bad pun.

*awkward silence*

Okay then, moving on.


I realize by now that most people have blogged about their Christmas and have moved on in their bloggy lives. But I been basking in the awesomeness of having my hubby home all week and so my blog has been a sorely neglected. 

We've been working, playing, hanging out, watching Star Wars, eating the candy we bought for the gingerbread houses we never made late at night after the kids are in bed so we don't have to share, and just about anything else that floats our boat this week. 

And it has been pure bliss. 

Well, outside of a few well preformed tantrums and fighting sessions loving put on by our kids, of course.  

Our Christmas was so chill, quiet, and laid back this year. It was just us and the kidlets. 

For starters, as any dutiful and loving parent would do, we tortured our children by showering before we started opening presents. We were just trying to build up anticipation and all, you know?



And thanks to a sweet and generous friend, our kids had an extra present to open this year. Thanks Maria!

Although at first, Savannah couldn't quite understand why Alayna got diapers for her gift. She didn't realize there was something other than diapers in the box.


And after presents were opened, which didn't really take too long, I'm not kidding when I say all we did for the rest of the day is relax and play with all the new toys.

Haha, I love Jacob's face in this. I just wish I had a better close up.



Real men do tea parties. Just sayin'.


Although, the biggest hit of all, was these bad boys.


We thought the boys would like them then decided we should get one for Savannah as well so she wouldn't feel left out.

But truth be told, Savannah was only mildly interested and even if she was otherwise, I doubt she would have much chance to play with it. Daddy has more or less, taken it over and there are constant battles going on between him and the boys. Little Nerf darts are always flying and if you don't watch your back at all times, you're likely to get shot in the bum.

Because boys think that's funny. Boys off all ages, think it's funny.  Eh hem... daddy....


I gave Luke a really, really, nice shirt that was sure to look fabulous on him. And even though it was in his size, it totally did NOT fit.

Apparently no one knows how to make nice shirts that fit a guy with broad shoulders and long arms. Pish, I was super annoyed.

Luke too gave me a little something.


And for him to hand over a little cash says "I love You" in so many ways.  :D

Although, I don't see why he would have to put a stipulation on what I can spend my gift on. But apparently buying $20 worth of shoes every six months or so is too often. *sigh*

But truthfully, it's okay. I really am in desperate need of some maternity clothes.

Especially since a certain sister of mine never returned most of what I let her *borrow*.

No names will be divulged at this time.

But you know who you are. *couAngelgh*

It looks like it was great fun at the Heiner home!
I love the pictures of the kids opening their treasures!
AND especially of the big kid taking over the artillary!
Too cute!
Enjoy the maternity clothes!
Take pictures.

Sorta smart of him NOT to buy maternity clothes for you. He might have gotten hurt, huh?

I love Christmas lazy days. Those are the best kind. And yes, boys and bum shooting seem to go hand in hand.
Isn't it sad when everything goes back to normal next week. Sniffles.

T said...

those Nerf guns are all the rage... nobody at our house got one this year... but no worries, we're well stocked up for many years and bums to come.

I thought of you tonight when I fed my kids 6-layer dip for dinner... we kept the avocado, but no green chiles :)

Stacy said...

My husband has been mostly off this week too, and you're right. Bliss. It's going to be a rude reality check on Monday!

My husband wanted to buy one of those Nerf guns for the two year old. Ha! We all know who really wanted the Nerf gun!

Sue said...

My grandkids are loving those nerf guns, too.

Glad you had such a nice Christmas together!

=)

Saimi said...

My boys grew up on Nerf guns, we had bullets flying all over the house!

Glad you had a great Christmas!!

Happy New Year!

Wendy said...

NO worries I haven't blogged about my CHristmas festivities either. I've just been enjoying all the time with the kids, and doing some major house cleaning/dejunking. But hopefully as they get back to school, I'll get back on track.

Jocelyn Christensen said...

Oh how the Grinch knows you! :)

Mama Smith said...

Being multiply sick and packing again kept me from blogging about my Christmas--so you aren't alone there! Nor in watching Star Wars. I watched 5 of them for Christmas. It was bliss.

Your Christmas looks and sounds exactly as you said: bliss. Just how a Christmas should be. :-)

Cheeseboy said...

Just showering? We made our kids eat, shower, read scriptures, comb hair, pretty much any torture we could think of.

The Nerf Gun was a big gift this year. It was a hit with our two boys except now I am finding those blased bullets everywhere.

Okay Sarah.....you never let me borrow any shirts so I don't have that. The two pairs of pants you let me borrow, you said I could KEEP! The only thing that I need to return is the jacket. It's just so cute! And I was going to leave it when I was up there for Abe's wedding I just forgot. SO...I only have one thing to return to you. :)

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Now now, I recall a certain pink paisley shirt that I have seen you in from time to time. I surely did let you borrow a few. But truthfully I can't seem to recall what other shirts you made off with.
You're right about the pants though.

But it really is okay. I just like giving you a hard time.

Lovingly of course. :D

Impulsive Addict said...

Looks like you guys had a GREAT Christmas!

I love that real dads do tea parties. I have a feeling that my husband will be partaking in a few of these soon....

Neisha said...

my son got about 4 or 5 nerf guns for his birthday. plenty for him and dad to play with :)
I peronsally think that you need some "maternity" shoes. :)

Angel said...

Haha I know Sarah....but I must say...I don't remember ever taking any of your shirts with me. I even pulled out my prego box and looked but I only have shirts that I have bought. Maybe you loaned your shirts to someone else. :)
