It’s Christmas morning and Andy and I wait patiently on the couch for the boys to wake up and come running down to see what Santa brought them. I had expected them to beat me out of bed, but instead they slept a good half hour longer than normal. Davy was the first to come down, his eyes sparkled and he was soooo happy. We sent him back up for Matty, there was no way we were going to let him get started without him.
Santa brought everything on their list this year, except for the Xbox 360. After all the gifts were opened, we brought out the last one from Andy and I and let Davy open it. He was so happy. He jumped up, hugged me, and said “Thank you so much mommy!” It’s the best feeling ever to see such childhood joy on their faces. The big gifts this year were: Lego table, Lego’s, Furby’s, Xbox 360, Skylanders, Slushie Machine, Jake pirate ship, Quirkle, Chuggington trains, Scooby Doo house, roller blades, cowboy cap guns, remote control monster truck and boat, metal detector, Matty’s “jeep” 4-wheeler, and Davy’s phone.
