Santa Was Good

Princess H says we should do Christmas again next year. I think she is catching on! I have been off of work since last Wednesday. Unfortunately I have to drag my behind back into the office tomorrow. So, in honor of signing off on Christmas and bidding New Year's Eve a fond hello, I give you the 13 things that I enjoyed most about Christmas 2009.

  1. I got to spend three nights at my Mom's with my sister an all of the kids. I love being with my family. It can be stressful (and loud), crowded (and loud), and chaotic (and loud), but I always miss it when it is over.
  2. Princess H LOVED her Barbie Dreamhouse with Elevator. LOVED IT.
  3. The kids woke us up at 5 AM when Santa came! My sister and I used to be that excited. That just tells me that we are doing something right.
  4. Super Z told me that he would be happy no matter what he got. (Unless he didn't get the bike that looks like a dirtbike. If he didn't get that he would cry for three days.) He was just glad that I was such a good mom.
  5. I got to be off work for eight days in a row!!
  6. Christmas day we went out to Mamaw and Papaw Felters. They played board games with the kiddos and Mamaw taught Alisha and I how to make her world class crispy, yet mushy, fried potatos. Yum.
  7. Randy, the kids and I got to spend a whole day at the house playing with our toys and enjoying each other before we headed out of town.
  8. Felter Christmas on Christmas Eve was a blast. I laughed so hard at one point with my sister and my cousins that I made no sound at all.
  9. At Felter Christmas I sang the whole family Princess H's bath song, "You don't have to take your clothes off the have a good time, oh No...but you have to take your clothes off, to take a bubble bath, uh huh." to the WHOLE 50+ family. Classic.
  10. Randy and I snuggling on the couch, looking at the tree, and waiting for Santa to come.
  11. Giving people presents that the liked. I LOVE that. If I was rich, I would give presents often...just for fun.
  12. Tyler is home with us!! We LOVE Tyler!!! He is awesome.(Even thugh he is a teenager!)
  13. The kids at mama's. They are so awesome and they love each other so much. I am so happy with those kids. They rock my world.
