Ha! No pun intended in the title there.
Well, okay, so... so maybe, a little pun was intended. A really... bad pun.
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*
