Christmas morning I got up early to shower and make sure everything was set up (ie: Santa had come). ;) The kids woke up and we dressed them in their nice Christmas picture taking clothes, lol, then they ran out to check on Santa's milk and cookies. They were happy to see Santa enjoyed his snack and also wrote a note back! hehehe It's so incredibly fun watching the kids have a good time.
After that big shabang, we looked up at the tree at the little envelope we had waited ohhhhh so patiently to open and decided it was now the time! SURPRISE! BOY!! :) Timothy Thomas Hauck.
We saved stockings for later in the day. I needed to get something to eat and change into scrumpies. I also couldn't fight the urge to pick up all the trash from opening presents and toys and start putting all the new toys in their rightful place RIGHT AWAY. *sigh* I'm a neat freak like that. But when we did get around to stocking it was super extra fun because the kids had forgotten all about them and were glad to have a few more things to open! Both Anth and Mols got undies....new Spongebob ones for Anth and Hello Kitty for Mols; her first ever undies! Yay! A set of new toothbrushes and character toothpaste helped balanced the tons of candy they got. And Molly was especially excited to get a hair brush and some chap stick while Anthony was excited to get his own pack of gum, haha.
The rest of Christmas day was spent relaxing and playing with all the toys. I went and changed out of my old scrumpies and into my new ones to try them out. LOVE THEM! :) The kids ran to the bedrooms to play with all the toys. Anthony and Molly built a castle with new castle blocks and then they dug right in to Anthony's train set he had just been DYING for after first seeing one at the dentist office. Mols had a good time playing with her Fur Real Friend doggie that barks, whines, and moves it's head when you pet it. It's super cute. Poor Sam was sick. Super sick. He did ok in the morning opening presents, but after that he took up residence on the couch and proceeded to sweat, cough, hack, sneeze, and sleep the day away. Boo.
We were going to have a nice ham dinner, but Sam was so sick we decided to take it easy and eat left over clam chowder from Christmas Eve instead. Not a big deal to me as the soup was delicious and I snacked so much during the day I had no room left for a large meal.
With love,Mama Hauck
