Merry Christmas!

I LOVE Christmas!  This year was no exception!  We had a great morning.  The kids slept until 6am (which I'll take any day!) and then we spent a LONG time opening presents.  The boys were all so happy and so thankful that it made the opening of each gift super fun.  I think my favorite one was Matt's big gift.  He had REALLY wanted an IPOD.  The problem is that with expensive things they get fewer gifts...and I didn't want him to feel bad when his turn in the rotation came around.  SO we wrapped the IPOD in like 4 different boxes.  One after the other with notes on it that said "Maybe next time!" and "try again"!  It was so funny to watch him try to figure it out!  I was also super excited about Ty's Barcelona jacket, Isaac's keeper pants and indoor cleats, Lucas' bike jersey, Matt's Barcelona shirt and Nick's Pirate ship.  My VERY FAVORITE gift though was the life size wall sticker of Lionel Messi!  SUPER cool!

 This year was a little different.  Usually we go down to mom's but this year they decided to go around and visit.  SO we had fun showing them gifts and opening gifts with them.
 THEN we went to Mary and Mike's for a Christmas dinner of Jamaican food!  One of my VERY favorite dinners ever!  It was a different Christmas Day but I loved it!
