"And Mom & Dad can hardly wait for school to start again................." I do not agree with that line in the song, I LOVE having the kids home. They clean bathrooms and vacuum, we play Battleship and Uno, eat lazy pancake breakfasts while watching Little House on the Prairie (Season 4) and go through insane amounts of Hot Chocolate.
There has been so much Christmas fun but I am going to dedicate this post to what Santa brought. As much as we are to focus on our Savior & His selfless sacrifice, there's of course still room to indulge in SANTA!!!
Ethan's main gifts were a light up skateboard and a razor scooter (found at a garage sale for $5, thank goodness it was blue). He also got a soccer ball, a few Garfield and Calvin & Hobbs books (used bookstore) , candy and 2 Lego boards (not used, what gives Lego? I love you but I can barely afford you!)
That was her only Santa gift as it was a big one, although she did get candy and some books in her stocking. My parents also gave her a (hand me down) Kindle. She was shocked to say the least.....
And now we're at Lila. Lila had the best gifts in the world. I LOVE her gifts. Lila's gifts were a labor of love. I planned it all, and then made Glenn and my mom do all the hard work of course.
Glenn is an excellent carpenter and can pretty much make anything I think up or show him in a picture. After he made the bed I took it to my mom's house and a day later we had this.
My mom has a stash of material in her garage so luckily I was able to pull all the material from there. I also got an adorable armoire from Target for all of Caroline's clothes. I also found a styling chair half off at a thrift store so put it all together and Lila's Christmas was just as sweet as can be.
Glenn & I didn't give each other gifts as he just got a truck and recently bought me a stairmaster and a fridge for our garage. But really, seeing the kids light up Christmas morning is the best fun of all.
