The boys loved Christmas. We got up and ate breakfast, then we proceeded to open presents taking turns. Josh had the job of throwing away the wrapping paper between opening presents and he was thrilled about having the job and John and I were happy to not have to do it. It was a peaceful morning. My favorite part was to watch the boys enjoy their presents and watch their imaginations take flight. I think my favorite part of being a mom is watching my kids play because they are so happy when they can get down and just play. I love these boys so much. They are the light of my life.
This year John of all people found his Christmas gift early, as in on December 5th. He found the coat and he wanted it so bad since it had been colder than usual. I let him take it out of the bag for his early Christmas. I guess it is better that he got to use it than it sitting in Nate's closet for another month. He didn't have a gift for Christmas except for the golfing tee matt for him and the boys to share. The boys, well really Josh, was kind enough to let Dad open a gift!
We had a candle light dinner that the boys loved! We had butter horn rolls, teriyaki flank steak, sauteed mushrooms, asparagus, and sparkling cider. It was a great way to end Christmas Day! The boys request candle light dinners almost every night lately!
