Ten Things Tuesday

  1. Christmas was so much fun!  I got the boys up at 5:00 and they were wide open!  When I was getting the boys in the car to go to Lumberton, Landon told me that "Santa did a GREAT job!"
  2. We always clean out all the "baby" toys and toys that don't get played with the day after Christmas so that we can make room for the new toys.  Well, this is the first year that Landon has noticed.  He wanted to know where all his old toys were, why Santa didn't come see those kids we were giving the toys to, etc, etc.  Then, after thinking about all I'd told him and looking at the basket of toys in the back seat, he looked at Chris and me and said, "I sure am going to miss my rocket."
  3. Sunday night, the boys were in bed watching cartoons before going to sleep. Well, if you have kids, you know on Diego, they interact with the kids that are watching, telling them to say certain things.  Anyway, after they had been watching it for a while, we heard Nixon yell, "I DID DIEGO!"  I guess he thought Diego didn't hear him!
  4. Take a look at what Santa brought Landon...
  5. Take a look at what Santa brought Nixon...
  6. Nixon absolutely loved opening up presents..in fact..he opened up his, Landon's, and anyone else's that would let him!
  7. Immediately after all the presents were opened and played with, Landon wanted to know how long before Santa comes again.
  8. Landon didn't get the Transformer rain boots that he wanted, but he did get some Pirate ones, along with a Pirate umbrella that he was estactic about.  Luckily, it rained on Christmas day, so he got to break both in and Nixon got to use his Spiderman boots.
  9. We started a new tradition this year.  Instead of Chris working on Christmas Eve like he normally does, he took the day off and stayed home with us.  We took Nixon to see his first movie at the movie theater, "Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel."  We had so much fun doing this, we decided to try to go see a matinee every Christmas Eve, as long as they have something the boys can watch.
  10. All our inside Christmas decorations came down the day after Christmas.  It's kind of sad, but I just have to put them away as soon as Christmas is over so I don't get too depressed that Christmas is a  year away!
