As usual, my kids made out like bandits. OMGoodness, the amount of toys and games and crafts and clothes is staggering. I pretty much could replace everything they own and I don't think they would notice. We had Xmas Eve dinner here, my first roasted chicken, it was really good. We let the kids each open one present, then off to bed to wait for Santa. As usual DH & I were awake before the kids (what is up with that? I was always up at the crack of dawn, not my kids lol), the kids get up, they open presents, and off to my Mom's for Xmas day, we had dinner and opened presents, then off to my Bio-Father's house to open presents and visit for an hour. Finally get home @ 8pm and fall apart. Get up Friday morning for a little after Xmas shopping (deals on wrapping paper, Xmas candles ect) and then today we spent the afternoon at the In Law's, more dinner, more presents. I'm exhausted and I want to fall apart and I'm so darn sick of chicken & turkey. We are ordering a nice big, greasy pizza tomorrow night, I don't care if DH likes it or not. lol
The kids got so many things that I don't even know where to start to type them all out, it is insane!
Overall it was a wonderful weekend, the weather is crazy, we were 4 degrees above zero last Saturday, then today we are at 67 degrees and going around w/o coats. No wonder everyone's noses are running.
I have lots of organizing and cleaning to do, hoping tomorrow is a pretty mellow day and then back to work we go on Monday. BLUCK!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday!
