We had our second Christmas with Michael and our 1st with all 3 kids.  It certainly seemed that Michael got Christmas a little bit this year.  He certainly didn't get Santa, but he started to unwrap some of his gifts.

This was the first year we hosted Christmas breakfast.  We got up before the kids and hoped to have some time to clean up before they got up and also get some of the food prepared.  Unfortunately, the kids were up before we finished and we started opening gifts.  The kids seemed to really like all the toys and we videoed the kids, but id not get any pictures of them opening their gifts.  The favorite for all the kids seemed to be the refrigerator magnets.  Eva Rose got her first doll and stroller and the boys got legos.  All 3 kids love dumping the legos and Michael and Eva Rose seem to like playing with the doll stroller.  Unfortunately, at first, Michael did try to get in it himself, but now he just pushed it around the house.  Eva Rose has definitely been puling up on it and starting to push it just a little.  Thomas just likes to play with everything.  after opening and playing, we realized that we were pushing the limit and really needed to start getting food together.  Everything pretty much went off with out a hitch and the only draw back was that I ended up in bed with a migraine.  Things got better and we travelled to Maine and had a great time at my sister -in-law and brother-in-law's house.

Michael's absolute favorite gift is Thomas' sock monkey in the box.  He laughs every time it is played and blinks his eyes just before the monkey pops up!  He's so cute to watch; laughing and getting excited waiting for the sock monkey to pop up.
All in all it was a great Christmas!

Hope everyone had a great holiday and many wishes for a fabulous new year!


  1. Sorry to hear about your migraine, but otherwise, it sounds like you all had a great day. How did Michael react when he saw the Elmo live? Does he love it?

  2. He didn' t react like I thought. I wish I knew why! I think he would have been happier with tickle me elmo and we would have spent less money! :)
