Monday Morning Dance Party

Oh boy, what a Christmas weekend! A wonderful Christmas Eve service followed by our new tradition of going out to pizza at a local pizzaria...


...ended with Steve and I watching The Hangover 2 while waiting for the kiddos to fall asleep. With a 2:30am wake up call from Mai who discovered that Santa had indeed made it to our house in the wee hours, we eventually fell back to sleep and arose at a more decent hour of 7 something a.m. to open presents before heading over to the in-laws, where we had to EARN our presents this year. From wall sits... to caroling... to answering Christmas trivia, a good time was had by all.


Well...maybe not by Mai, who in attempts to befriend a squirrel, was bitten quite good on her finger. She'll survive, but she's plenty pi$$ed at a certain peanut flesh eating critter. Although it appeared to me to be a good haul under that holiday tree..She said it was the worst Christmas ever...


So to you other kids all across the land
Take it from me...
Parents just don't understand

Earn your presents? We were just saying yesterday we were glad we didn't tear through our presents. You certainly didn't do that!
