If I make one more promise to get caught up on this blog I may have to hurt myself. Let’s face it, I’ll never get caught up. Lately each time I sit down to write a post of finish a post I get lazy or Big C puts some movie on this –
and I get all distracted by the wonderfulness of this new TV set and glue my resisting eyes to it. I’ve been trying since Christmas day to write the Christmas post and each time I sit in the TV room to write well you can guess what happens. First movie was “The Dark Knight” and oh holy cow was that great. Then it was “No Country For Old Men” not as impressed but still wow. Last night it was “The Pursuit of Happiness” and now it’s “Little Miss Sunshine”. Oh it’ll never end.
That was Santa Claus’ gift to himself this year, that and the nice little surround sound package Mrs. Claus picked up for the TV room. I’m working on the post to explain the new TV room we have. I’ve got what the room looked like from before we tore everything out to how it looks right now. Pretty darn sweet, it’s a no toys allowed room.
Down to business – Christmas time came on seriously fast and I think I almost missed it. We got fairly busy at the shop and I didn’t even get started on the Christmas shopping until the week before Christmas. The boys would have made Dick Clark proud with their daily countdown to Christmas day, first thing when the little one would pop up out of bed would be to announce how many days left until Santa Claus was comin’ to town. I did the initial reconnaissance mission to the Target for the man in the big red suit and then after asking multiple times what they wanted for Christmas and getting the exact same answer we had to do some blacks ops mission back to Target to find the two special gifts.
It was midnight before this elf headed off to bed and the two little dudes decided 6:30am was as long as they could sleep that morning and came bounding in exclaiming for us to come see what Santa had brought them. We both groaned as we rolled out of bed to document the morning for all of prosperity. Needless to say the boys were thrilled with the big man in red.
We had twelve total people over for a late lunch on Christmas and had a really good time. The boys spent a lot of time playing with the really awesome Millenium Flacon they got and their action figures. Z Man has even come up with an idea to make some mini movies with all their action figures. We spent the last weekend having Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa’s where we came home with a van full of toys. I got to hold squishy cheeks a lot and the Casey J even got along with Miss Riley Roo.
