Wow, Christmas just jumped on my back this year literally the day before. Madden only asked for a helicopter and London asked for a barbie puppy waterpark.(Oh yeah, it exists).
Unfortunately Christmas morning came around and Mimi and Papa's house and I realized that Santa had forgotten to deliver a bunch of presents. One of those being the helicopter. Oh well, London did feel a little confused as to why Madden had more gifts than she did and why she didn't get any clothes to wear on Christmas day, but she was quick to forgive Santa's mistake.
I seriously don't know what my deal is this pregnancy. I totally locked myself out of my car twice in three days. The first time I was stuck sitting at Wal Mart, praying that Mandy found me a spare key all the while trying NOT to puke in public. Tyler was kind enough to tell me that daily he finds things in the cupboards or fridge that shouldn't be there.
Like steamed broccoli in the cupboard, cereal in the fridge, and cookie dough in the pantry. The good man that he is shields me from further confusion and just takes care of it. Apparently I was hit with the stupid bat over Christmas as well. Madden was so stinking excited for Santa to come. He and London were hilarious.
We took them to Rise of the Guardians the Saturday before and it was probably the best thing we could do. In the middle of Christmas Eve night I heard London say, "Santa, is that you?" and "Jack Frost? Are you there?" Too funny.
Tyler did end up coming to bed after playing Xbox until 2:00 a.m.. This is an improvement because in years past, he and Bradley (my bil) have stayed up until 5:00 a.m.. Which is what time the kids awoke this year. We had two Christmas Eve's this year. The first was at Ty's mom's house where the kids got all dressed in their nativity best. Tyler bought me a camera this year and unfortunately, I don't know how to download the pics. So further images of Christmas will have to be in the near future. Does that make sense? Anywho....updates for the week along with family pics:
-Madden climbed in my bed one morning and said, "You have pretty eyebrows, Mom." Uh...thanks. I asked him why he thought so. He said, "I just do, but Gabey said my eyebrows were awesome!" Okay.....
-Kids are still eating me under the table thanks to Tyler's genes.
-Madden will tell you that Daddy is a bad driver and Mommy is a good driver. This is because Daddy drives slow and Mommy drives fast.
-London believes that the word "idiot" literally means someone not as smart as her mom. (Who told her that?):)
-Madden pulls clown faces frequently in family pictures.
