Santa was here!! (Christmas Day '07)
Santa was sure to stop by our house on Christmas Eve to bring presents to ALL 8 of the children who were here for Christmas morning... our 4 AND Mike's sister's 4 kids ... 8 kids ranging in age from 22 mos. - 15 yrs. old. They ALL must have been very good this year because the tree area was loaded with gifts! :)
Luckily, all of the kids slept in on Christmas morning. :) A few of the older ones did get up a little earlier & took a peek, but waited for the little ones to wake up before opening gifts and once we came down, the older ones were a huge help with the little ones... thank you for that! My 3 girls were LOVING their new doll babies and Anthony was LOVING his new trucks, cars, and airplanes. I love it... it's the little things in life that bring the MOST joy! :)
This house was definitely FULL of a lot of children, wrapping paper, and pure holiday joy this Christmas Day morning! I was so happy to see how smoothly everthing went... it was a great time for all. :) I love Christmas! **Merry Christmas from our family to yours.**
p.s. Since I'm sure some of you are curious: The pic of all 8 shows the following-- Angelia, Matthew (nephew), Stephanie (niece), Anthony, CJ (newphew), Micaela, Juliana, & Thomas (newphew).
