48 hour Christmas Bonanza

Well we survived the 48 hour Christmas bonanza.  Started Christmas Eve with a whirlwind cleaning of the house, some skating on the pond, Christmas Eve service at church, the in-laws came around 5:00, had dinner, opened gifts, ate pie, made sure everything was ready for Santa.  Christmas morning we opened gifts, played with gifts, messied up the house, cleaned up the house, my family came around noon, ate dinner, opened more gifts, played with gifts, shared time with family (this is the first year all the adults were able to sit around the table after dinner and talk), ate more pie, dealt with power outage, celebrated the power coming back on, ate supper, got in the middle of a Nerf War, played in the new Grocery Store, watched RIO the Wii game, read bedtime stories, collapsed into bed. (That might be a run-on sentence.)

It actually went pretty smooth this year, probably the best yet.  It was nice to get everyone together and the kids were so excited (some of my kids are  ADHD so you can imagine what ADHD + Christmas excitement looks like…and sounds like.)  It’s funny how the kids want to open and play with, make, build everything they got in the same day.  I’m trying to convince them to spread it out over the next week.

It was fun but it’s a good thing Easter is four months away!
