We spent a few hours of Christmas day somewhat cleaning up! Every year, we have the same "issue" I love the "chaos" of Christmas and want all the presents under the tree for a day or two. I don't mind the clutter and love randomly going to the tree to get what I need. Andy on the other hand, would prefer to put everything away immediately....we've come to find a nice compromise, at least on my end. We packed up and headed to Grandma and Grandma Ted's around 3.
Of course presents were 1st on the list...we tried to hold them off...but after about 20 minutes of small talk..the boys were chomping at the bit! Seth got a new science lab and a neon sign maker...as well as some cool new clothes (he's glad he got new swishy pants, and not jeans for school)Grant got some new track and another train for his Geotrax...we're going to have to rent out space for them to set this monster up.
Andy got new clothes (he is going to be dressed to the hilt)...and I got a griddle, pajamas and we both got money for new kitchen rugs! YEAHGrandma always spoils us with stockings too..and each item is wrapped!
and this year...they were overflowing. She even spoils Andy and me with stockings too!
Blessed to have Cathy and Ted in our lives as well...they spoil us too!
It was a wonderful, blessed Christmas...spent with family, the ones who matter most!
