At 7:00, they got back up and waited patiently while E and I went to the bathroom, got coffee (refrigerated frappuccino for me) and got the cameras.
(B's shirt is on backward!!)
B went right for the biggest one!
B kept saying, "Thanks mom, thanks dad!"
When he opened his blue camo blanket, he said, "I love camo! It's marines." E asked him how he knows that..."Because marines have blue and regular army has green."
He put it on his bed right away.
Clothes! B got a Dinotrux and a camo shirt, and W got a bacon shirt and a very applicable school shirt.
(I thought it was too much and wanted to save some of the Lego Dimension sets for Easter, but E refused, saying, "Santa had a good year!")
(and chocolate covered cherries, chocolate milk, eggnog, leftover desserts from last night, etc!)
Opening stockings. (E and I didn't mention them, we wanted to see how long it took the boys to remember them. B remembered almost immediately after opening presents!)
(I hung up my name stocking, so no idea where the unlabeled stocking with no hook came from!)
B with his loot!
Digging for gems. W got a blue sandstone, and B got a (miniscule chip of) real diamond!(He refused to use magic words! I was honestly tricked my the "floating wand" until I saw it from a different angle! ha ha)
The new perfection game was a waste of my four dollars- very small and didn't work! :( I registered our Chick-fil-A calendar cards right away.
B puts together his very first big Lego set.
Lunch was random leftovers, so for dinner, I made a ham and broccoli cheese casserole. (I also planned to make cherry limeade but the boys just wanted plain Sprite.
After the table was cleared, it was family puzzle time! We did W's Diary of a Wimpy Kid puzzle (which is missing two pieces). B had a very short attention span, and E got annoyed at people (me) not sharing the box. (Next year, I'll make three copies of the box picture!)
Happy Birthday, Jesus! A white cake with my homemade cranberry butter and homemade 2 ingredient white chocolate buttercream!
That's a lot of candles. By the time I got to "Jesus", "happy" was almost all melted! lol
The cake was pretty, but the icing was just ok....E and I were so stuffed from eating junk all day, (And I had put the cake on the upside down lid of my cake carrier, which means it wouldn't close so it would get stale pretty quickly...) so we threw the entire cake in the trash!
