Christmas 2010

Dan and I survived Christmas. We had so much fun this year shopping for the kids and we bought stuff during the year so when it was time to survey the presents we were amazed at how much stuff there was. We set a budget and we came in under budget so we were proud of ourselves for that. The kids did not get big presents but got what they needed and of course some toys. Michael wanted a police Lego set and clothes. Mattie and David had no request but both got Lego's and clothes and other toys. Also grandparents on both sides of the family bought either scooters or little trikes for the kids. Since then Dan and I have been busy putting together Lego sets. I have to admit that I'm pretty good at putting them together. I will have to post a picture one day of my creations. Christmas Eve was low key and my dad came over. Christmas day was very nice. I think this is the first year that Michael really knew about Christmas and he was excited. He had a hard time going to bed and kept getting out of bed to either go to the bathroom or get a drink. The last time was around 1 am and I all I can say was we almost got caught putting presents out. On Christmas morning Michael was up at 6:00 and Mattie and David were up around 7:00. Grandma and Grandpa Hurd came over in the morning and my side of the family came over in the evening. The day was wonderful and we played with all the new toys and by time night time came we were all so exhausted.
