Merry, merry, Oh, soooooo merry!
This morning I finally got the kids out to It's a Blast. Kaitlyn has been begging for days to go and play and since I had the house mostly cleaned up as of last night I thought today would be a good day to get out and have a blast elsewhere! (and keep our house from getting messed up)
I was also a beautiful day so on our way home we picked up Em and Phil. I still had a lot of work to do to get ready for the evening....they play so well together despite the age gaps....though it is kinda more like baby sitting for them I guess.
This evening we had my side of the family over for dinner and then we had our gift opening since we are all going separate ways this year for Christmas.
I was so excited to see the kids open their gifts and I was sure that my gift would be dull in comparison....I couldn't have cared less if I even got anything...just seeing them light up would have been enough for me. Don't get me wrong-I love presents, but I just love to see their little faces light up!
Then Dave brought out my gift.....
...and I got a monkey face....
I should get an award for the faces and dances I did, I must have looked like a nut.
I sure didn't know I could get as excited over something as I did. I was screeching...speechless....blabbering.....giddy....ooo, just soooo happy.
Why? you ask.
Like get to the point already.
I got a ....well you can see in the pic below!
Hugs, big hugs and kisses go out to my man! He sure knows the way to this girls heart!!!!!!
Oooooo, I just love him!
He is the best!
With a bow on top!
I just love my dad and brother Phil's faces in this pic....it was a good one!
Kaitlyn had unwrapped the brushes and canvases once already but had no trouble acting excited all over again.
Now for the ones I was waiting for...the ones I was anticipating.
"Oh, my...Ahhhhh, kitch!!!!"
The excitement wasn't quite as high for Ethan, he was tired and cranky, but once he saw his train table he stood and played for an hour.
I think they liked their gifts....I sure like mine.....I think. I have yet to get to know it, but it sure is pretty!
