The BEST Christmas EVER!
We had an absolutely wonderful 2 days! On Christmas Eve family and friends had gathered at my parents house for an afternoon/evening of Christmas cheer. Everything was just so perfect and the boys behaved so much better than we could have hoped.
This morning Don had to work, but he met the boys and I at my moms by one in the afternoon, just in time to help me with lunch and naps. Jax, Luke and Wyatt slept for about an hour before little Luke woke up screaming in such a fit that we were unable to get him to go back to sleep. Luckily Wyatt and Jaxon slept right through it! Lucas was able to spend some time with the adults downstairs. He had a couple hours of one on one time with Don and I and saw what it would be like to be an only child.
The boys had received some fantastic presents and Jaxon loved to help unwrap! Tons of much needed and loved books (thanks auntie "Leee-agha") as well as great toys like a dance mat and a bounce castle/ball pit from my parents and relatives, Sam and Coralee. Those toys should help to keep them busy and get rid of some of that boy energy!
But overall it was just the joy of having everyone together- new family, old friends, and of course, the boys- that made this Christmas so wonderful. I am so very thankful to have such a beautiful Christmas memory.
