Is it 2011 and I am just now recapping Christmas?
Well, yes, yes it is. But…for documentation sake (and if my hubby decides to have House of Rose 2010 printed in a book like he did 2008 and 2009) I MUST recap our best Christmas yet!
I knew THREE was going to be a fun age for Christmas…but honestly…it was MORE fun than I even imagined! Of course, Bents was fun too…in his own little “I could care less about presents” kind of way. 🙂
We started by baking cookies for santa and leaving him a note that read:
I’ve been a good boy & so has bubby’s (just ask Sofie). *Sofie is our Elf on the Shelf* I would like Legos, a truck, trains, cars, and games! Please enjoy the cookies & milk.
We knew santa was going to feel right at home when he got to our neck of the woods. It was almost as snowy as the North Pole. Almost.
His “stage”…as I call it.I can not tell you HOW excited he was this year. And the best part…he knew santa was coming…but he also knew it was a day to celebrate the birth of Jesus! The most important part of all!
Somehow santa must have flown to Las Vegas and stole this choo choo set from Gma Lilly because it ended up under our tree. Hmmmm. Sneaky Santa.And I am pretty sure that daddy and papa hated the santa that dropped off this gift. Ahem. Not me. I think it took them over an hour to put it together. Seriously the box said 3-5 years. But, I am pretty sure it meant 3-5 years of college education because there is no way that a 3, 4, or 5 year old could figure this thing out. Not a chance.
In even better news…it was only up for about 36 hours before P knocked it all down. I am pretty sure NO ONE will ever attempt at putting it back together the correct way.
We had such a great Christmas this year. I can hardly believe next year will consist of 3 boys. I am running out of boy toys to buy. We have them all! The third baby is gonna be out of luck!
